WELCOME TO THE PENTLAND HILLS REGIONAL PARK

Pentland Hills regional park logoThe Pentland Hills Regional Park is a living, working landscape, which offers great opportunities to experience and enjoy the outdoors. Sculpted by glaciers and water, then shaped by people's interactions over thousands of years, the Pentland Hills are a special place for everyone.

Lambing season is now in full swing in the Regional Park. Unfortunately the Easter weekend has already resulted in lambs being killed by dogs. Dogs must be kept on a short lead or close to heel in areas where there are sheep. Hillend Country Park is the only area of the Regional Park not grazed by sheep.

Discover just how great a place the Pentland Hills Regional Park is. Find out about Regional Park Service, discover more about the culture, history, geology, landscape, and wildlife.
