The Walk That Did (Not) Happen


Of late I have been using the Pentland hills, outside Edinburgh, to develop my map and compass reading skills. One of the planned days out started from Harlaw car park, which is located near the reservoir with the same name. The route card I had created had everyone heading up and over Harbour hill before a hike back around Black hill to the car park. After turning up to start the walk, the weather had turned to the point where it was difficult to see much due to the driving rain. The wind speed would have made walking tricky at higher altitudes.

The route started off along the mud track towards Harbour Hill. At the path junction, we took a left and headed the couple of miles to the farm Easter Kinleith. From there we followed the road back to Harlaw Car park.
