Edinburgh Castle, snow, Scotland

Another great nature eacape is a walk in Blackford Hill Local National Park, a bit south-west from the Salisbury Crags. There is a pond with ducks and swans, a hill with an observatory from where you can get a beautiful view of both the Castle and the Crags, a little forest with a creek and the Hermitage of Braid, now functioning as the park rangers center.
