i'm just going to post few options for mid-length walks in Pentland hills.

* this option starts from a Lothian 44 bus stop in balerno. follow the rd towards the trees, pass animal shelter farm. walk straight ahead, never take right turn at any crossroads. finaly you'll reach bavelaw reservoir, go up the lovely birch alley and take the left when you reach the crossroads. from that point the path leads to the howe, passing black hill on your left and a wee waterfall on your right. follow the rd along the glen, reservoirs, as far as you reach signpost for harlaw/bonaly. follow the path to harlaw, pass visitor centre untill you reach a farm at the crossroads. take left and the rd will lead you to balerno, to bus 44 stop.
