Roslyn Glen
Sometimes muddy, but always beautiful walks in Roslyn Glen, near Edinburgh.

North East England and Southern Scotland are both full of sites of historical interest, a legacy of the wars between the two countries. Of course some of the history goes back to Roman times, when Scotland and England did not exist. I'm always interested in the history around me, and especially in the folk tales and quirky stories that accompany these places. I've tried to describe some of them in each walk.

Featured Walk - Warkworth river and village walk

This is a pretty village walk of about 1.5 miles through a back lane behind the main street, round by Warkworth castle, then back to the car park by the river Coquet. The walk is basically dry, which is good in these winter months, although if the Coquet is in flood part of the river walk might be underwater. There is ample free parking by the river behind the Church.
Warkworth contains several pubs and cafes for that essential after walk drink. There is also a large castle for those who like more than just a walk, and a beach close by. While the route is steep in places, it should be ok for disabled access.
