Re: River Almond Walk

Re: Boot Insole

I got memory foam insoles from Lidl (or maybe Aldi) for around £3... had them for around 6 months and they have been great.

Re: Nice wee hills

Don't forget the southern neighbours... little or no walk in and lots to choose from.

Re: Transportation in Scotland

You could also use the 100 bus from the airport to get to Maybury junction then cross the road and get the 900 Citylink bus to Glasgow Buchanan Bus Station (cheaper than the train but overall just as quick).

I like a challenge and on many of my visits to the Pentlands I wondered about a route such as this. I then discovered that it existed as a race route used by the Carnethy Hill Runners.So all t...
