Pentland Peaks Short Route

pentlands

On Sunday, Jon & I headed out for the Pentland hills for some hill walking. We haven't been hill walking in a while, and since we are planning on walking up Ben Nevis by next Summer we thought we should get back into it.

We parked up at Flotterstone and did the Pentland Peaks Short Route, a nice 10km/3hrs 30mins loop. I always try and print out the planned route before we go - Bing maps have an Ordnance Survey layer which is great and of course free!

The weather wasn't so great - one minute the sun was shining and the next it was pouring down. It was also super windy on the hills. I was almost blown away! The views were fantastic and we shall have to come back to do the 18km route in the future.
