Slateford, Edinburgh

The former village of Slateford is to the South West of Edinburgh City Centre, bordering Longstone.

You can walk along the narrow but popular Union Canal walkway/bike path crossing the towering aqueduct, which with its 8 arches remains an impressive engineering feat to this day.

Nearby is the 14-arch railway crossing which joins Slateford Railway station, on the Shotts line between Glagow Central and Edinburgh Waverley.
