Walking in the Pentland Hills : 30 walks in Edinburgh’s local hills:  This guidebook describes 30 circular walks in Scotland’s Pentland Hills, a range of low summits which extends between Edinburgh and Biggar in South Lanarkshire. Ranging from 3 to 27km (2-17 miles), there is something to suit all abilities from the novice to the experienced hill-walker, with each route showcasing a different aspect of the area’s unique character. Each step-by-step route description is accompanied by 1:50,000 OS mapping and a wealth of interesting information on the region’s rich natural and cultural heritage: its geology, history, wildlife and connections with literary greats such as Robert Louis Stevenson and Sir Walter Scott.

In Walking in the Pentland Hills, local place names are explained, local folklore explored and there is a helpful glossary of dialect terms. The Pentland Hills can be enjoyed in all seasons. Although the highest summit, Scald Law, stands at 579m, stunning vistas belie their modest elevation: this is a region of grass and heather-clad slopes which rise above picturesque valleys hiding streams and reservoirs.

Walking in the Pentland Hills is an ideal companion to discovering great walking on Scotland’s most accessible hills.
