You have to visit Holyrood Park if you go to Edinburgh, a great expanse of countryside slap bang next to the CBD. Easy access from many entrances, I went via the Scottish parliament site and next to Holyrood Palace. If you feel energetic enough you can climb up to Arthur's Seat (an extinct volcano), the view from the top on a nice day is worth it, but even if you just want to go for a gentle stroll, there's enough space for everybody. Take a picnic, feed the swans, go up to St Anthony's ruins, go for a run/jog, look over the cliffs, don't get too close to the edge though! No matter what you do, go get some good, Scottish fresh air in 'yer and enjoy the rugged countryside that is so accessible.
