Walking: The Kips and Scald Law

Join us for a longer walk in the Pentland Hills- this is one of my personal favourites! It is a classic circuit in the Pentlands taking in the iconic Kips and the highest point in the Pentlands Scald Law. This route is about 12km long, has 500m of accent and will follow track, trail, grassy slopes and muddy path. The route includes some steep sections especially over the Kips and a steep grassy slope on the decent from Scald Law. We will walk at a steady pace but if you are unsure if you can join us please get in touch!
The walk should take around six hours and the tops can be colder and more exposed than expected so please come prepared for all weather, ring plenty of water and your lunch!

This walk passes through fields containing sheep and other livestock so if you are bringing dogs they must be under control and on lead at all times!
There is a carpark at Thriepmuir and public transport to Berlerno. If you need a ride please post below to see if anyone can give you a lift!
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.
