Three Reservoir Walk

This is a lovely 11km walk in the Pentland Hills just outside of Edinburgh. The walk will head up to Torduff and then Cubbiedean Reservoirs before swinging round through some farmland, up and over Harbour Hill and down past Bonaly Reservoir. The walk is on a mix or paved roads, gravel tracks and dirt paths, these paths could be wet and muddy at times. There will be some short hilly sections. We should be out for about 4-5 hours so please also bring a packed lunch with you!
We will meet at 10.30 at the junction of Bonaly Road and Torduff Road. There is parking hear on Torduff road and on the residential streets on the other side of the bypass in Bonaly. There are regular Lothian Buses from the city centre to Bonaly (10 and 16 being the most useful I think!)
It is now Autumn in Scotland so come prepared for it to be cold and wet (even if the sun is shining when you leave home! I’ve made a list of recommended kit but it is by no means exhaustive! If you have any questions about what to bring or any of the kit listed please ask in the Facebook Group.
Recommended kit list
• Comfortable quick drying clothing (jeans not recommended)
• Waterproof walking boots or shoes
• Hat, gloves and scarf
• Waterproof trousers and jacket
• Extra warm layer (eg fleece or down jacket)
• Lunch (you could bring a flask with a warm drink or soup in it too!)
• Water bottle with enough water for the day (I’ll be bringing 1liter)
• Snacks
• Survival bag
• Headtorch
• Charged mobile phone (and somewhere waterproof to put it!)
This is a dog friendly walk, and you are welcome to bring your dogs. However, they must be always kept on a short lead and please be aware we will be passing through fields with sheep and possibly cows.
As always, you join LHW events at your own risk and are responsible for your own safety at all times. Please see the about section of the Facebook group for more details.
