The Pentland Hills are a popular, easily accessible upland range located to the southwest of Edinburgh. As a destination for hillwalkers, cyclists and those wishing to enjoy the outdoors, the Pentlands are well known to those from Edinburgh and the Lothians. They are perhaps less visited or overlooked 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 and landform 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 a Countryside Ranger. It includes 30 selected walks for all to enjoy. The author is a Countryside Ranger for the Pentland Hills Ranger Service.
'The gentle rolling, grass and heather clad, Pentland Hills form a familiar backdrop to the City of Edinburgh. The northern part of the range is a Regional Park, with a ranger service.The author, who began walking in the area during her early teens became a countryside ranger in 1995. In this, her first guidebook, she describes 30 walks, with routes clearly illustrated on OS maps. All are easily accessible from Edinburgh and some can be adapted, or linked, to create longer walks.'(Strider / August 2007)Check out the review on the following websiteUndiscoveredscotland.com
