Colinton Tunnel

Path along water of Leith through Colinton tunnel

The Water of Leith walkway is 13 miles long, and runs from Balerno to Leith.

The Colinton Tunnel is thought to be Scotland's largest outdoor mural. Stretching to over 140 metres long, it tells the story of Robert Louis Stevenson's poem 'From a railway carriage'.

Spylaw Park sits on the banks of the Water of Leith. Its main feature is a wide variety of trees, including conifers, beeches and even a monkey puzzle!


Mostly wide and flat, with some gentle hills. Slightly steeper hill to exit Spylaw park to Colinton.
