Edinburgh, Pentlands and Lothians Walks

Edinburgh, Pentlands and Lothians Walks

by Terry Marsh
This is ideal country for walking: a superb mixture of empty rolling hills and expansive moorlands and delightful rivers, bounded by fertile lowlands and an impressive coastline. From the Bass Rock and Berwick Law of North Berwick in East Lothian, through the Pentland Hills of Midlothian, to the historic royal burgh of Linlithgow in West Lothian, the region is rich in both terrain and heritage.

This Pathfinder Guide makes the ideal companion for country walks throughout this region. Clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale maps and specially commissioned photographs. With 28 colour-coded routes to choose from, all tried and tested by seasoned walkers and varying from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, there is a walk to suit all situations.

The guide introduces you to the area and highlights the most scenic walks. Each walk entry begins with a box giving start, distance, height gain, time, parking and route terrain. This is followed by a short overview highlighting the routes features. The main route finding instructions have paragraphs numbered corresponding to numbers on the OS map and GPS waypoints making navigation safe and easy. The route is highlighted in yellow on the map. The guide also includes information on where to park, good pubs and places of interest along the route.
