    Not entirely sure where Braids Hill is :confused:? Blackford hill is an awesome place for walking dogs :) it's really dog friendly and there are always lots of pooches around. You get a great view of Edinburgh too if you head up to the Observatory side.

    Also there is up and around Arthur's seat and the nearby park, Inverleith Park is also pretty dog friendly and has a nice swan pond. You can do the waters of leith right along to Balerno!

    Where do you usually walk your pooch?

    There is the trail through the Braids, which a lot of the riders from Tower Farm use. If you can travel, there is Corstorphine Hill, Cammo Estate, Pentlands, Arthur Seat - all really good walks.

    As for Dog Parks, not heard of any within Edinburgh.
