A guidebook to walking Scotland's Pentland Hills - a popular, easily accessible range to the south-west of Edinburgh. The 30 walks are suitable for all levels of experience, and the routes described have been chosen to give a flavour of the hills at their best. As far as possible the routes are circular, for some walks you may need to retrace your steps for a short way back to the start point, but none is linear. There are optional links with other routes in the book included to lengthen some walks and informative 'points of interest' are found throughout. The Pentland Hills offer a variety of experiences from an undulating ridge walk to a stroll beside the quiet waters of a reservoir. They reach a maximum height of 579m at Scald Law, although most lie between 400m and 550m in height.

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. 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. 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.
