The Water of Leith Walkway starts in Balerno (Bridge Road) and follows the Water of Leith as it winds its way 12¾ miles to Leith, where the river joins the Firth of Fourth. On route it passes through the towns of Balerno, Currie and Juniper Green before reaching Colinton and Craiglockhart Dell.
The Dell is a wooded gorge which is a haven for wildlife; and the woodland dates back as far as 1750. Downstream from the Dells the river passes the Water of Leith Conservation Trust Visitor Centre before flowing through Gorgie, Saughton Park, Roseburn – passed Murrayfield Stadium, Dean Village and Stockbridge before reaching Leith. The Walkway is a popular route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders alike; it is used for recreation as well as commuting.
