Disabled Access

The very nature of the Pentland Hills means that routes accessible to wheelchair users, and others with disabilities are limited.

The visitor centres at Flotterstone and Harlaw are both accessible to wheelchair users, with Flotterstone Information Centre being adjacent to the car park and Harlaw House Visitor Centre being approximately 200 metres from the car park.

Harlaw Woodland Walk starts and ends at Harlaw House Visitor Centre, 0.9 mile all abilities path around one side of the reservoir and a tarmac vehicle track around the other 1 mile section. The wildlife garden adjacent to the centre is also wheelchair accessible.

The Robin Aitken bird hide at Bavelaw Marsh has a wheelchair accessible boardwalk, allowing wheelchair access into the hide. Red Moss also has a boardwalk that allows access onto the Lothian's only raised bog. Parking can be found at Threipmuir Car Park.

The Flotterstone Glen starting from Flotterstone Information Centre is a 3 mile linear tarmac/surface road that takes people up the valley, along side Glencorse and Loganlea Reservoirs.
