Terrain description

This is an area of open hillside adjacent to the Midlothian ski centre, which has recently been extended; as a result, the map is currently being updated. There is some woodland on the east side, and extensive gorse patches on lower slopes. Otherwise it’s mainly rough grass, with heather higher up. There are excellent views over the city from the higher slopes, which are part of the Pentland Hills Regional Park.
There is a permanent orienteering course here.
Used for Local events (e.g. Saturday events or Fight with the Night).
