Terrain description

Pilrig Park is NE of the city centre, off Pilrig Street, between Leith Walk and Bonnington Road. This city park is managed by the City of Edinburgh Council. It is mostly open, with many mature trees. Flat grass slopes up to a wooded hill in the north of the map, and there are two play areas. The park was once part of the grounds of Pilrig House, built in 1638, which still presides over the area and has historical links with Robert Louis Stevenson.

MapRun courses are available here.
