The Pentland Hills rise immediately to the south of Edinburgh and provide excellent hillwalking within easy reach of the city. Allermuir Hill provides superb views of the capital whilst further into the range there is wonderful ridge-walking along Carnethy Hill, Scald Law and the Kips. Away from these most popular locations the Pentlands still provide some quiet corners with plenty of room for exploration.
