Cobbled climbs: Ramsey Lane, Edinburgh

My friend Andrew Abbess was in Edinburgh recently and kindly remembered that I had been charting cobbled climbs in Scotland and snapped a few pics.

This little stinger is in Edinburgh’s old town, and the photos were taken where Ramsey Lane becomes Mound Place. The climb is obviously well known to cyclists as shortly after, ERC roadie went past.

The climb would be ideal as part of a Tour de France prologue up to Edinburgh Castle.


Thanks to Andrew for the pics. He is an expert in cycling advocacy, liaising with local planners, and also runs Stirling Cycle Training.
