Let it snow! Let is snow!

Arthur’s Seat 

We love snow here at Edinburgh Run Tours! It is not exactly the best weather for running tours, but it does make everything look picture postcard perfect and so every once in a while we don’t mind!


Plus, as avid runners, it just means that we take things down a notch, put on our hiking boots and our Yaktraxs (awesome piece of kit for the ice and snow!) and get out there!


Yesterday we took a hike up Arthur’s Seat to enjoy the views over the snowy city. As you can see it was beautiful up there, even if rather windy! We did not make it right to the top as it was too dangerous and we want to make sure we are around to take you all on your tours! We did have a sneaky jog back down though and hopes no one noticed when one of us ended up sliding most of the way down on their bum!


Today, it is the same out there, but with more wind. So instead of running, we will be staying indoors and doing some strengthening and stretching exercises ready for our weekend tours!


We would love to see you in Edinburgh on one of our tours. We can’t promise snow, but we can always promise spectacular views!


See more. Experience more.



20 great things to do in Edinburgh

Posted on

When you are not running with me on a running tour, perhaps you might want to try out a few other great things to do whilst in our beautiful city.

TimeOut have put together their list of the Top 20 for Edinburgh (though they seem to have missed off my running tours…..) of which I can vouch for about 15 of them already, I’m going to head to Bramble Bar myself for my birthday in December and going to stay in the lap of luxury at The Balmoral in January as a treat for my hubby who turns the big 40!

Take a look for yourself and pick some out for your next visit.
