If you like walking I would recommend a trip to the Pentlands. Plenty of choice in what walk to take on. Some walks you come across pretty steep hills. In a nice sunny day the views of Edinburgh are amazing. I would also say take...More

I planned to hike these hills before I even arrived in Edinburgh. To get to them, you can use the number four bus at the princes street stop and go all the way to the last stop which is the snow sports stop/park entrance. Keep...More

Quick and easy trip from the city centre on the 44 bus. Beautiful views and you can see the highland coos too! Lovely reservoirs and small waterfalls. Be prepared for a bit of mud if its been raining.

This was our first visit to the park and we hugely enjoyed it as there were great views and an easy walk round the water. This is a very popular walk with dogs.

in no time at all, you can be walking in the hills believing to be in the middle of no-where. In particular, the Southern Pentlands which are much wilder. We did a 4 hour walk in beautiful sunshine last Sunday and saw no-one else. The...More

The Pentland's are so close to West Lothian and Edinburgh and is the perfect place to go for a walk as there are so many tracks to chose from. You can go easy or hard, but no matter I think they are brilliant and the...More

Only information centre is closed. As it a park, there's no opening times as such - you can come and enjoy paths and hills whenever you like :) Restaurant-pub near by is open 7days as well.
