This area is on the SE side of the Pentlands, near Penicuik, adjacent to the Castlelaw firing ranges. It includes the Iron Age Castlelaw hill fort and souterrain, which is in the care of Historic Scotland. Most of the area is steeply sloping rough pastureland with pockets of deciduous woodland and some gorse. There are some hill tracks.
There is a permanent orienteering course here.
Used mainly for local events or training.
