Scald Law and Carnethy Hill, Flotterstone

Scald Law is the highest of the Pentlands; this classic approach reaches it via a very fine switchback ridge, taking in the shapely Carnethy Hill along the way. The return follows the minor road by the Loganlea and Glencorse Reservoirs.


Clear hill paths; some rough sections
