On a very fine Sunday, 10 Easycyclers set off from Peter’s yard, with 2 new members among their number. Michael led us to the Crags and then down the south side of Holyrood Park, taking advantage of the ban on cars on a Sunday. The just opposite the Sheep Heid, we enterd the Secret Garden and enjoyed the terraced gardens to the North of Duddingston Loch. Next up was a scoot down Cavalry Park drive and through the golf course, then a run through the green parts of Bingham to the Jewel Asda (loo stop).
That done, we took the renovated Bruntstane Burn path into Portobello, and a wee mile Westwards along the Prom took us to the Dalriada, our lunch stop, where we were lucky enough to have the beer garden to ourselves in the sun.
A few Cullen Skinks and isotonic refreshments later, we skimmed along Fishwives Causeway and Northfiled Rd, and had a wee climb at Willowbrae to then skirted along the North of Holyrood Park, and then back to Peter’s Yard.
