Beauty Spots in Edinburgh and Lothians

View of the North Berwick Law

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland but is a third of the population of Glasgow. Perversely the city has no motorway access to the South and since the local transport links are excellent the city and surrounding area can easily be accessed without a car, arriving by train or plane. The highest concentration of Scotland's major attractions are found within the city and surrounding area - Edinburgh being the top tourist destination in Britain outside of London because its attractions are mostly concentrated in a central area. For the purposes of this guide, the city centre and East Lothian are listed seperately and the Lothians are defined as mainly the areas to the North, South and West of the city.

  • In Midlothian the nature reserves that are recommended are: Linn Dean near Dalkeith, Roslin Glen, Milkhall Pond near Penicuik, Erraid Wood near Fairmilehead, and Red Moss South of Balerno. In West Lothian the recommended nature reserves are: Hermand Birchwood and Addiewell Bing near West Calder, Linhouse Glen near Livingston, Longridge Moss near Whitburn, Bogburn Flood Lagoon, Peterhill and Tailend Moss near Bathgate and Pepper Wood near Kirkliston
