About the Park

The Pentlands provide you with an opportunity to discover Lothian's fantastic landscape with a close look at the rocks under you feet and the views all around. 

The land has been shaped over time by monumental forces with the rocks that remain often crafted into drystane dykes. Across the Pentlands, drystane dykes not only frame the views but are apartment blocks to a whole community of wildlife inhabitants such as stoats, voles, mosses and lichens.

The Pentland Hills Regional Park is a great place to find out about farming. Look out for special Pentland Hills Producers signs dotted around the Park. They will be happy to give you information about how their animals thrive on the hills natural assets to bring this local produce to your plate. You can buy lamb and beef from them directly.
