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
