We’re so keen on the Medal Routes (short circular walking routes that start and finish at the same location) put together by Ramblers Scotland.
And not just because many of the routes start and finish at Edinburgh libraries!
Inspired by the Commonwealth Games, there are bronze, silver and gold routes, designed to take approximately 15, 30 or 60 minutes to complete.
When you’re done you can relax at the library (perhaps with one of these tales of walking adventure)
Visit the Ramblers Scotland site to download the maps or pick up pick up leaflets from the following libraries which features as start / finish points:
Currie, Granton, South Queensferry, Wester Hailes, Blackhall,, Leith, Portobello, Central, Craigmillar and Morningside.
And if you’re doing one of the Wester Hailes Library routes you can borrow a pedometer and starter pack, so you can see how far you walk in a day!
Make sure and ask too about the guided walks that the library are running throughout August – and check our progress chart to see which member of staff does the most steps between now and the end of the Commonwealth Games!
