Description

This is a MUST DO Hiking Tour in the prettiest hill range from the 7 hills which creates Edinburgh. Discover the Scottish Highlands & Stunning Scottish Nature just on outskirts of capital city! If you love nature & want to explore real beauty of Edinburgh and famous Pentland Hills, then this is the ideal Hiking tour for you/ We’ll hike 6-7 miles with an elevation gain of 300-350 meters. You’ll learn about flora & fauna, geology, Scottish history and nature. Pentlands offer stunning views over the whole of Edinburgh and Lothian region, the Borders and Fife. You'll also see Scottish Lochs (Lakes). We'll go at the pace of everyone in the group and take breaks as needed. We might be able to spot the illusive Highland Cows (Hairy Coos), if everyone in the group is okay to hike that direction as it is a steeper climb (493 meters) or if we don't have any other member booked on that day or if you book a tailored private hike.

Important Information

  • We finish our tour at a different location than our start location around 1:30 pm. Then it is a 20 to 30 mins bus ride back to the city centre. So please leave at-least 2 hours buffer time for your next appointment. Sometime we run late as not everyone is a fast hiker in the group. Please be considerate for others. Thank you. IMPORTANT INFORMATION: 1. This hike is for both beginners and experienced hikers but Minimum Fitness level is required. You need to be okay or use to hiking up & down hills for couple of hours 2. Good hiking footwear is essential. 3. Scottish weather is unpredictable however the walk will go ahead even if it is raining, so please dress accordingly and carry waterproof clothing. Some form of jacket or windbreaker, the hill gets windy. I carry couple of hiking poles with me just in-case you need to borrow them.
