Also nearby is the climb to Arthur's Seat. This splendid hike is a real highlight of the area, commanding fine views over city and the coast.

At the south western side of the park there's the Clubbiedean's Coffee Shop next to Clubbiedean Reservoir. There's lovely cakes and coffee here. You can find it on Torduff Road at the north eastern end of the Clubbiedean Reservoir with a postcode of EH13 0PA for your sat navs.
It's a good wide open space for you to bring your dog for a walk so you'll like bump into other owners on your visit. There are sheep around so it's best to keep them on leads in these areas. The Clubbiedean Coffee shop mentioned above is also dog friendly.
