great trail. lots of wonderful views. definitely recommend

Starts out with 2 steep hills which give some great views, and then the second half is mostly flat along some reservoirs. Nice walk

Great trail run or hike with lots of elevation gain. From multiple vantages you can see the surrounding countryside and beautiful lakes.

Used to cycle this route when living in Edinburgh - great exercise and great steps gradients to get the legs burning....

Not sure it ‘features a lake’! There is one lake in Scotland and it’s not in the Pentlands.

Nice walk. Only down side is that the last third is on a concrete road and not on soil

Great walk. Rubbish description!! I do this walk regularly. . But, it not Staffordshire!!! It’s Midlothian. And there are no lakes there. There are reservoirs.

The North Esk Valley walk is an excellent walk. The directions were spot on. I never needed to bring out the map and without the directions I would never have found the walk and the directions kept me on the route all the way. Great.
