Edinburgh just happens to be a great location for a picnic. With Easter around the corner, pack your bag full of food and drinks and head to some of the places below for some relaxation and hopefully some sunshine.
Even though the walk to the top does not take too long, the views are sensational! If you have a little more time on your hands, do not forget to take a look at the hills many monuments. The National Monument, Nelson Monument, and Robert Burns Moment.
Arthur’s Seat and Dr Neil’s Secret Gardens
You may decide to head straight to Arthurs Seat for its incredible views across Edinburgh or if lugging a picnic to the top doesn’t sound fun, make a pit-stop on the way to Dr Neil’s Secret Gardens.
Princes Street Gardens
One of Edinburgh’s most popular spots for a picnic on a sunny day. It is conveniently central, yet a place which is calm and quiet.
Royal Botanic Gardens
Just one mile from the city centre, the gardens are well-known for its stunning views. This is a great spot to sit down with a picnic while enjoying your surroundings. It offers peace and tranquillity amongst 72 acres of beautiful scenery.
This spot is a firm favourite if you have your fury friends with you. Sit and relax while your dogs play in the green fields around you. The paths are flat and wide, great if you have children who are coming along for the adventure too! – There is also a playground!
Inverleith Park was made for Picnics! Grassy Parkland, beautiful trees, and a sundial garden all add to the appeal. It has amazing views of Edinburgh Castle and several peaceful lakes to walk alongside.
