This is the second of two books describing routes in and around Scotland's countryside parks. Volume 2 Edinburgh and East describes sixty varied walks of two to seven miles, mostly accessible by public transport and close to urban centres such as Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen.
Among the parks included in this guide are Beecraigs, Almondell and Calderwood, John Muir, Pentland Hills and Lomond Hills Regional Parks, Lochore Meadows, Camperdown and Clatto, Crathes Castle, Haddo House and Aden.
Many of the country parks, country estates and regional parks covered in the book have other visitor attractions including castles, stately homes, gardens, art work collections, museums, galleries, shops and cafes. Some have adventure playgrounds as well as sporting opportunities such as golf, mountain biking, orienteering, sailing and canoeing. The book contains detailed notes on the parks and their facilities, including weblinks and public transport options for visitors.
This is an invaluable guide that will appeal to a wide range of walkers, from those looking for family outings to casual visitors and tourists, as well as others interested in exploring their local environment and people seeking evening or weekend walks close to home.
