This tour is for those with their own bicycle. We will cycle from Edinburgh city centre to the seaside at Musselburgh using a network of dedicated cycle paths. Along the way we will visit some of Edinburgh's lesser known sites, including the Innocent Railway, Craigmillar Castle, Newhailes House, and a secret garden at Duddingston. The highlight of this ride will be the beach promenade at Musselburgh followed by an ice cream from of Scotland's most famous cafes.
This bike ride takes you away from Edinburgh city centre to explore the cycle paths that lead to the seaside at Musselburgh. You will be amazed at the variety of things you can see just a short distance from the city. We begin on the dedicated cycle lanes in the Meadows. We follow the cycle paths in the direction of Musselburgh, mainly on a disused railway line, so seperated from traffic. There is a short onroad diversion to visit the impressive Craigmillar Castle where there are breathtaking views of Arthur's Seat and the city skyline. We rejoin the cycle path to reach Newhailes House, a beautiful stately home. A short onroad section then takes us to the beach promenade at Musselburgh. We travel the quieter roads of the town to reach the famous ice cream cafe of S.Lucca. From here we join a bicycle path alongside the River Esk. There is an opportunity to make a brief diversion to the very pretty village of Inveresk before beginning the return route to Edinburgh. Before reaching the city centre we make a visit to a secret garden at Duddingston which is a beautiful spot to end our tour.
