Places to visit in Edinburgh

1/ The Tunnel

Map Will fill this in later.

This I found on one of my first walks. The sign I found after a few of days.
Safety railings above tunnel Lanark Road end of the Tunnel.
Path from tunnel to Lanark Road. Body snatchers Burke and Hare

2/ Innocent Tunnel

Map One of the many disused railway tunnels in edinburgh. It was closed to rail in 1968 and opened as a walk/ cycle path in 1981. It is 564/517 yards/metres long and lit quite well. If you aim to walk this tunnel, I recommend going down hill as its quite a climb coming tthe other way.

Innocent Railway tunnel, worth a walk.

3/ Trinity Station

Map This station is still standing and has been converted into a family home. The outside still maintains its station look. This station stood on the North British line. It is now part of the Trinity foot and cycle path.

Trinity Station now a house, still stands on the Trinity path.

4/ Scotland Street Tunnel

Map This was one of the first tunnel I went looking for. I walked from Trinity along the trinity Path,. Then onto the Goldenacre Path which took me through Rodney Street Tunnel with Scotland Street tunnel right in front, sadly closed now, even for walking in.

5/ Craigentinny Marbles

Map Went there today, 24/7/2017, and was amazed at the size and position of this mausoleum. It seems out of place now, being surrounded by more modern bungerlows. It has two marble carvings, one either side and they are amazing.

The sheer size of this place amazed me. The workmanship on the marble panals, tremedious.
