Walking and cycling routes in Midlothian

Midlothian has a great variety of landscapes, from the upland ranges of the Pentland and Moorfoot Hills to rolling farmland, woodland and river valleys. Why not explore the wooded Esk Valley at Roslin Glen, or take a stroll through the Victorian parkland at Vogrie Country Park?

There are also a variety of linear and circular routes to explore throughout Midlothian, some of which are suitable for a range of abilities. Many of these paths act as a link between towns and villages - some form Rights of Way and others will become part of the Core Paths Plan.

Please ensure that you wear appropriate footwear and take waterproof clothing on the longer walks. It is recommended that an Ordnance Survey map should be used when undertaking the more remote routes
