I headed out around 1pm, which was perfect timing for the low winter sun. Unlike the days before, the wind wasn't too wild, so I managed to nab some calm, still photos of the river.
Though it was baltic (very cold), the promenade was filled with tourists, locals, dog walkers and runners. It's one of my favourite spots in the Edinburgh vicinity and apparently I'm not alone! The views out across to the Forth bridges and the snowy hills in Fife are beautiful.
Below are some more photos for you to browse through, but look out for some hill and mountain posts coming up as I train for Los Tres Picos 2017; three peaks in three days will require a lot of training (and therefore lots to write about!). So sign up via email at the bottom of the article and you'll be kept up to date with my new posts!
