Explore Edinburgh on Foot or by Bike

The Council is encouraging more people to try cycling or walking to work, college or university.By Foot or Bike Logo.jpg

To help you make a positive change in your daily commute, we're continuing to improve Edinburgh's network of QuietRoutes.

These are designed for walkers and cyclists of all abilities and are a great way to travel around the city avoiding the busy main roads.

Aside from the obvious health benefits, walking or cycling to work or study is a great way to start your day or even de-stress at the end of the week.  You will see more of our beautiful city on these convenient routes - so enjoy exploring Edinburgh!

You can find out more about each QuietRoute on the Council's website, including route numbers and maps you can download. Also you can find out about guided walks, cycle training and other things.

One of South Central's local routes is QuietRoute 6 - George Square, Meadows to King's Buildings

Travel between the University of Edinburgh campuses at George Square and King's Buildings on quiet roads and traffic free paths.

The route has new signs and offers a great way of travelling to study, work or simply for a day out in the Meadows.

Along the way you can stop off at George IV Library - the Meadows - Marchmont for shopping and cafes - Newington Library - King's Buildings.
