Pentland Hills and Reservoirs

Following the Sun
 Just now the Sun never gets too high.  So shadows are long and days are short. Still there's time enough for a ramble in the Pentland Hills just outside Edinburgh

Sunset at 2:30pm???
It doesn't help when the horizon is elevated

We enjoyed our circular walk today around the 4 reservoirs: Threipmuir, Harlaw, Glencorse and Loganlea

Threipmuir (taken on 25/12/12)

Glencorse today,  Hogmonay


The way home, gateway from the hills
It's an eight mile round trip and we arrived home happy and a little tired.

Happy New Year to you, wherever you are.


  1. Happy New Year - were you in Edinburgh for the fireworks and Simple Minds?

    1. Rather tired after our walk, only just managed to stay up for the bells!

  2. Looks like a lovely walk Mal...far too wet to do any off road walking around here at the minute. I do miss getting out though. Lovely views you have.
