West of Edinburgh is Seafield, a lightly populated area in the Mid-Lothian area of Scotland. While the area is known mainly for its creameries and dog and cat shelter, there are still quite a number of things to do. The district is surrounded by the beautiful Scottish countryside that is perfect for long walks along the river, poetically named Water of Leith. Or perhaps you'd prefer to peruse the museums and historical sites that dot other area. Whatever your preference, Seafield is a lovely place to visit and escape from the big city life.
- See the animals at the Five Sisters Zoo Park which proudly houses animals, birds, and reptiles gathered from all points of the globe to reside in Seafield.
- Leave Edinburgh and spend the day at Almond Valley where there is a wealth of family fun including live farm animals, a play area, and trailer rides.
- Visit Cairnpapple Hill, once used by the people of Edinburgh and the Lothians as a ceremonial site and then later used as a burial ground.
There are public buses that take passengers from Edinburgh to all surrounding points, including Seafield. Some routes go from place to place and eliminate the need for other modes of transportation. Many sites nearby are on the National Cycle Network and can be accessed by bicycle although the terrain is hilly and uneven. Otherwise, you'll need to hire a car to get around, as there are no taxis in Seafield. Once in town, you'll find that, with a few exceptions, most of the attractions are just outside the area and bit too far flung for walking.
