The walk, from Penicuik to Eskbank, takes place on Saturday 29 September and entries for the 3, 5 and 8 mile distances can now be submitted.

County’s beautiful scenery

Now in its 8th year, the walk takes in some of the county’s beautiful scenery along the historic walkway between Penicuik and Eskbank.

Soup and roll provided

For those doing the 3 mile walk, registration opens at 12 noon at Hawthornden Cemetery Road in Rosewell, joining the other walkers at 12:30pm.

All walkers taking part will receive soup, made by pupils from Penicuik High School, and a roll, donated by Morrisons, at Rosewell before continuing on to the finish line at Edinburgh College Midlothian Campus in Eskbank where refreshments and information stalls will be waiting.

The entry fee is £3 per walker, including children and dogs.

The event is not a race or charity event but if individuals or groups wish to use it as a fundraising opportunity then they are welcome to do so.  All children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

Established in 1999 in partnership with NHS Lothian, the Ageing Well project aims to provide a range of opportunities to encourage the over 50s in Midlothian to increase their physical activity levels.
