Bruntsfield, bikes and hiding wardens

Bruntsfield Links, the Meadows little brother, just across the road but not quite as well known. Nestled in one of the better areas of Edinburgh the links are teaming with students heading to the University, cyclists and it’s even got it’s own pitch and putt. The difference between an area like this and say, Hailes Quarry in Wester Hails is huge. In Hailes Quarry, it’s a large green space but there you’ll be dodging the dog turds and Staffie owning tracksuited owners, here in Brustsfield you’re more likely to get ran down but a mother and toddler exercise group, I kid you not, mums out jogging in a large group while pushing buggies… with a trainer.

Ride a bike like this round the council estates and if the neds don’t get you the ridicule will, here though? It’s the height of fashion!

Yes, the council does keep this area clean, hardly a dog turd to be seen.

A large cycle path crosses the links, bikes to one side, pedestrians to the other and woe betide you if you’re on the wrong side.

Nearer the main road just across from the Meadows is the bowling green, and a traffic warden seemingly hiding…

The Barclay Viewforth Church sits at the western edge of the Links and dominates the skyline in the area.

Head to the upper edge of the Links and you’ll get a great view of the castle above the typical apartment buildings in the area.
