Explore Mortonhall on foot
The paths are open all year round. Occasionally it may be necessary to close sections, for example, for woodland and farming operations.
The paths are all signed and way-marked indicating whether they best used by walkers, cyclists and/or horses. Please keep to the way-marked paths and respect the privacy of the people living on and about the estate.
The estate farm tracks and drives have been incorporated into the path network. The farm tracks and drives are used by vehicles and agricultural machinery for ongoing estate management so please make every effort to stand back from drives and tracks when vehicles approach. This is more important than it is on the public highway as the tracks and drives are normally only a vehicle width wide.
