HAILES QUARRY PARK AND UNION CANAL WALK

Park view

IN DETAIL

A walk including the Union Canal towpath and Hailes Quarry Park. A good time to see how our natural heritage copes with winter.

This mid-winter walk may be adjusted to suit prevailing conditions. The walk will intersect with roads and rail at several points allowing a linear walk. A likely end point will be Wester Hailes Shopping Centre where there is a cinema that serves refreshment.

The visitor centre opens at 10am and serves refreshments if you want to arrive early.

The Water of Leith Visitor Centre is on several bus routes.

Check advice page for field trip guidelines. Consider carrying a stick/trekking pole to help negotiating some rough ground or when leaving a path.
