The Pentland Hills are a popular, easily accessible upland range to the south-west of Edinburgh. They are well known to hillwalkers, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts from Edinburgh and the Lothians, but are perhaps less visited by those from further afield. Once discovered and explored, this hill range offers the visitor a variety of experiences from an undulating ridge walk to a stroll beside the quiet waters of a reservoir. This diversity of landscape is reflected in the rich natural and cultural heritage found throughout the hills. Uncover the fascinating archaeology of the hills, discover their hidden wildlife and how they inspired the likes of Robert Louis Stevenson, and unfold the best views – all in the knowledgeable and enthusiastic company of the author Susan Falconer, a countryside ranger with the Pentland Hills Ranger Service.

The area''s excellent path system, interesting but not too rugged terrain, and proximity to civilisation offer a superb introduction to hill walking in Scotland.
