The Friends of the Pentlands seek to act as a catalyst to promote the conservation, protection and enhancement of the Pentland Hills, with particular emphasis on recreational quality, public access, cultural heritage, landscape and biodiversity.
Area of Interest
- The City of Edinburgh By-pass in the north;
- The A702 in the east;
- The A70 in the west and
- The minor road from Dolphinton, via Dunsyre to Newbigging, and then the A721 to Carnwath in the south.
While the Organisation’s practical activities are largely conducted within the area defined above or on footpaths giving access to this area the Friends also have an interest in developments which impact on the visual landscape of the Pentland Hills, either when seen from the Pentlands or from the surroundings of the Pentlands.
