Pentland Hills Voluntary Ranger Service

Voluntary Rangers

The Voluntary Ranger Service has operated in the Pentland Hills Regional Park since 1997 and continues to make an excellent contribution to the work of the Regional Park.

Voluntary Rangers are individuals from a wide range of ages and backgrounds, including retired people, students and those with a keen interest in the Pentland Hills. They patrol the Regional Park at the weekends, giving advice to visitors and checking the state of the path network. There is also the opportunity to take part in biodiversity survey, back marking guided walks and helping at events.

The Voluntary Rangers receive intensive training that enable them to assist in the delivery of park services. (See How to become a Voluntary Ranger for more infomation).

The Pentland Hills Voluntary Ranger Service aims to:

  • Enhance the work of the Regional Park in caring for the hills,
  • communicate the work of the PHRP,
  • encourage people to think positively and act responsibly toward the Pentland Hills,
  • and help people understand and enjoy the hills in safety.

Other opportunities for volunteer and community groups to participate are also available, visit the Schools and Groups page or Contact Us.
