The Pentland Hills are almost on our doorstep and yet we rarely think to head over for a walk. However, I’ve recently spotted a few photos on Twitter showing just how lovely the heather is at the moment – a beautiful array of pinks and purples – so I thought it was time to see it for myself. We parked up by Castlelaw Hill Fort because the car park at Flotterstone was already full to bursting. Our walk took us passed the military firing zone and then down towards Glencorse Reservoir. We mustn’t wait so long before we head up there again!
