We love the Pentlands Hills Regional park and after the snow yesterday, we headed up a very cold Swanston track to get some wonderful views of Edinburgh. You can download a map of the Pentlands and plan your route according to your fitness.
We parked at the free car park beside the Swanston Golf Club House (open to the public) and followed the track through the picturesque Swanston village.
Make sure you’re suitably dressed and have enough water and food etc. If you’re doing a long walk, please tell someone where you plan to go and what time you expect to be back.
Adhere to signs in the park with regards to dogs on leads and don’t go into the marked areas if the red MOD flags are up.
There can sometimes be highland cattle in this area, please do not approach.
