This is a lovely river running approximately 12 miles from Balerno to the harbour at Leith but with very easy access from points along the stretch where you can access local transport when you have done 'enough' walking.Visit the Water of Leith Centre on Slateford Road where there is a small 'hands on' display which all ages will find interesting and the small cafe is very enjoyable (even sell decaff ground coffee). At the centre you can find out about 'events' being held and my grandchildren tackled the making of small boats which they then (with all the other participants) took down to the river to race each other. The event was closely supervised but wellies needed although they do keep a small supply for those who arrive without them!
