Twenty special mp3 tracks have been recorded for you to download and listen to as you explore the Water of Leith from Balerno to Leith. Twenty plaques appear along the walkway to let you know which track you should be listening to at each location.
NEW – You can now listen to each step along the trail via our new SoundCloud playlist. We have also added the SoundCloud track, YouTube video and text for each of the audio points below. You can save the album or individual tracks in the SoundCloud app or you can download the mp3 files to add to your own device.
Each video and track provides local history commentary and information about special features, the river and its wildlife. We also give advice on the route and orientation, on the assumption that you are following the walkway downstream from Balerno to Leith.
You can download individual tracks via the SoundCloud players or each step shown above has its own downloadable mp3.
Alternatively, we have made all the tracks available in the following zip files.
The Water of Leith Conservation Trust in partnership with the Scottish Government has put this project together, with additional funding from local donors.
The two voices heard across the tracks belong to Helen Brown, Trust Manager with the Water of Leith Conservation Trust, and Brian Henderson.
