You wouldn’t believe this but just a wee bus ride ( or car ) and you can enjoy the beautiful nature in Edinburgh.
The Pentland Hills Regional Park offers everything that you need when you had enough of the city life. Sculpted by glaciers and water, then shaped by people’s interactions over thousands of years, the Pentland Hills are a special place for everyone. Look at this photo! It is like a painting!
You can be adventurous and climb high hills or just take the dog for a walk. Or yourself. If you don’t have a dog. When I had enough of people, traffic, noise and need some fresh air and green nature then I go here. If you go the way to Balerno take the path from the bus stop you’ll see the differences straight away! The reservoir, the hills, the lambs and people. Actually people are chilled and even say hello to you, the hills are quiet and demanding and the water is still and clean. Sometimes even the sun is out! Yep, never forget we are in Scotland!
