This interesting village is just outside Edinburgh, from Portobello. The village was once a weaving community. The church looks interesting but whenever I went, I found it locked. There is also a house where Bonnie Prince Charlie was said to have stayed.
Nearby is a loch, and all this is just under the ridge of Arthur's seat, and views of the Pentland Hills.
It makes a pleasant run in the late afternoon when the ducks etc are walking around near the loch.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
