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

We come to the Pentlands on the weekend to go off on all the small gravel paths we can find. You could walk up there for hours! Today we made our way around the reservoir, which the dogs loved, then went through a massive forest....More

Nice for long hiking. Beautiful sights in moorland with lakes, hills, sheeps grazing all over. For hiking best route is take a local bus from Edinburgh tonear The Flotterstone Inn and then take a long 12km hike till Blaerno and take a bus to Edinburgh

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.
