This will be final summit of the depths of winter classic hill race - the Carnethy 5. The gentle silhouette, belies a brutal climb and hair raising descent to the finish line. #fun #hillrunning #Pentlands #carnethy5 #fellrunning #scottishhillrunning
Lunchtime run up Castle Law today- smashing views, although the combination of lots of road followed by a final steep, slippery ascent wasn’t that fun in my (now gripless) old fell shoes! #lunchrun #hillrunning #pentlands #shadow #trailrunning #nogrip #oldtrainers
Another perfect day for a long walk... #wintersun #pentlands #dogsofinstagram #keepmoving #hillwalking
Absolutely delighted we came home from the World Gin Awards in London weighed down with a GOLD medal!! . To come runner up in the most hotly contested U.K. London Dry category is a hell of an achievement for us, narrowly pipped to the post by @whitbygin well done guys and best of luck against the rest of the world. Here’s to 2019.... . . #worldginawards #goldmedal #medals #winning #scottish #gin #scottishgin #edinburgh #pentlandhills #pentlands #craftgin #stockup #kingshill

Scald Law. The origin of the name is uncertain. Some people believe the name originates from the Old Scots word "scawed" meaning bare while others think it came from the ancient word for Blackberry, "Scaldberry" ... . . . #plants #hike #microadventures #craghoppers #mycraghoppers #ordnancesurvey #getoutside #trek #scotland #greatbritain #unitedkingdom #outdoors #adventure #travel #mountains #hills #forest #photography #loch #adventurephotography #naturephotography #nature #fields #farmhouse #pentlandhills #pentlands #instacool #instagood #instaphoto #photojournalism

A new day, bright blue skies, big ideas and brilliant meetings. A blue sky day makes everything seem more possible. #seepossibilitiesineverything #eastside #eastsidecottages #eastsidefarm #pentlands #nature #landscapephotography #scotland #thiswaytothehills

What a view 💕🙌🏻🌸☀️❄️ #blessed
Only 15 minutes drive away from me. So chilled. This was my first time here with @jo_rose24 🌲 - #scotland #pentlands #nature #walks #naturewalk #gloom #scenic #edinburgh #clouds #reservoir #water #tree
Memories of the Pentland Hills and the beautiful overcast skies that give it such a remote feeling. Scotland was a wonderful place to begin 2019 and this is one of my first photos taken this year, on a long walk through the incredible countryside outside Edinburgh. #pentlands #pentlandhills #edinburgh #visitscotland
Okay, so the weather is set to turn to snow by the end of the week and I'm not sure I believe the newspapers and forecasts. In the UK we have a habbit of hyping up our bad weather to apocalyptic levels but let's face it, it's been mild for quite some time. So much so that some of the plants haven't even died back this winter... . . . #plants #hike #microadventures #craghoppers #mycraghoppers #ordnancesurvey #getoutside #trek #scotland #greatbritain #unitedkingdom #outdoors #adventure #travel #mountains #hills #forest #photography #loch #adventurephotography #naturephotography #nature #fields #farmhouse #pentlandhills #pentlands #instacool #instagood #instaphoto #photojournalism

"The benefits of hiking across the peaks is that you maintain an even altitude, giving you a birds eye view across the surrounding landscape. You catch more views like this. I love the light coming through the clouds. God beams as I like to call them"...Sean . . . #light #hike #microadventures #craghoppers #mycraghoppers #ordnancesurvey #getoutside #trek #scotland #greatbritain #unitedkingdom #outdoors #adventure #travel #mountains #hills #forest #photography #loch #adventurephotography #naturephotography #nature #fields #farmhouse #pentlandhills #pentlands #instacool #instagood #instaphoto #photojournalism
A day in the Pentland Hills, looking onto Edinburgh! We ain't half getting around this week! 🐕🐾#edinburgh #city #pentlands #trekking #dogsofinstagram #dogsofscotland #scottishinstadogs #views #dog @scottishinstadogs
Preparing A3 prints for an online order. My shop link can be found in bio. These two prints were created from scans of an original cut paper artwork and an original watercolour. #edinburgharchitecture #pentlands #photographinginscotlandsdimlight #edinburghcastle #cutpaper #cutpaperarywork
What a super mild January we have had. Over 10 degrees some days which is almost unheard of. The forecast warns that Winter is on its way next week so we are preparing. The bracken will be white with frost shortly... . . #slowliving # winteriscoming #eastsidecottages #eastsidefarm #pentlands #pentlandhills #edinburgh #nature #scotland #thiswaytothehills
All of the timber we provide free to our guests in the cottages is grown & harvested on the farm. We also use a very efficient biomass gasifier to heat the Stable and Steading cottages fuelled using our own timber. When we have just planted 42,000 trees it doesn’t get much more sustainable than that! 📸@hiddenscotland . #slowliving #sustainability #eastsidecottages #eastsidefarm #pentlands #pentlandhills #edinburgh #nature #scotland #thiswaytothehills
Sunshine, snow showers & wood fired Swedish hot tubs. There is something so beautiful about wood fired. You have to slow down, this hot tub doesn’t start at the touch of a button. It is Scottish spring water heated by wood harvested on the farm. The smoke curls out of the chimney & the stove crackles filling the air with the smell of woodsmoke. In this fast paced world there is something very meditative about taking your time. . . #slowliving #eastsidecottages #eastsidefarm #pentlands #pentlandhills #edinburgh #nature #scotland #thiswaytothehills
A wonderful view of Edinburgh and East Lothian from the Red Flag, Don’t do what I done and run up there when the flag is flying,means live firing!!! #run #runedinburgh #ironmantraining #redflag #tri #pentlands #edinburgh #trailrunning #hillrunning #midlothian #running #runeunrun #humansoftriathlon
Sanderlings and Godwits are only on our shores during the winter, while oystercatchers and redshanks are there all year round. A winter walk along a beach in East Lothian will probably show you at least one of these birds. Happy memories of winters beach walks watching sanderlings dance with the waves. - - - #btobirds #rspb #birdlover #britishbirds #lovenature #unlimitedscotland #ig_scotland #instascotland #rspbscotland #nuts_about_birds #birdfreaks #birdsofinstagram #woodlandtrust #biggardenbirdwatch #scotland #seacliff #pentlands #woodland #garden #coast #makingmemories #memories #beachwalks #shopscotland #scotlandstradefair
Leading lines are often a subject of many of our photos here on @tarmacandtrails and I love trying to find them in the man made landscape as much as the natural one. They help guide the eye and give you a sense of place and scale... . . . #light #hike #microadventures #craghoppers #mycraghoppers #ordnancesurvey #getoutside #trek #scotland #greatbritain #unitedkingdom #outdoors #adventure #travel #mountains #hills #forest #photography #loch #adventurephotography #naturephotography #nature #fields #farmhouse #pentlandhills #pentlands #instacool #instagood #instaphoto #photojournalism
That day we decided to walk the Pentlands on one of the hottest days of the year 🙊Roll on the summer 🌞@philk89 #pentlands #pentlandhills #edinburgh #scotland
Made the most of a good day yesterday. Nice blast in the car before a stomp up a hill. #scotland #pentlands #gooutside
Trails so sweet today in the #pentlands . Can we get through the winter with no snow? #mtb #scotland @trekbikes #fullstache
Did you know that puffins only have their bright beaks in the summer months when they are on land to breed? For the rest of the year they are found at sea with a much drabber bill. #funfacts #puffinfacts #birdfacts #btobirds #rspb #birdlover #britishbirds #lovenature #unlimitedscotland #ig_scotland #instascotland #rspbscotland #nuts_about_birds #birdfreaks #birdsofinstagram #woodlandtrust #biggardenbirdwatch #scotland #seacliff #pentlands #woodland #garden #coast
A rather windy catch up 🏞️ boy do we know how to take a beautiful pic 😍😂 #catchup #walk #fun #pentlands #justatadwindy
Wowoww remember when I nearly cried because I climbed up like five of these mini mountains and cursed nature? Nature heard me and caused me to wipe tf out soon after and it’s still a miracle I didn’t twist an ankle 📸: @rebeccalaurajayne (I also stole it from her insta 🤷🏻‍♀️👯‍♀️😘) #latergram #likemuchlatergram #travelscotland #pentlands
Recovery 5 miles in the Pentlands including Turnhouse. Unexpected gusts at the top reminded me that you should always have the right kit when going into the hills, luckily Renn was strapped to me as he was almost blown off the ridge.🌲💨☁️🐾🐕 #pentlands #labrador #ruffwear #harness #ultramarathon #training #patagonia #ulimatedirection #inov8 #trailrunning

Exploring the Pentlands today for the first time. Recce of the Carnethy 5 #pentlands #dogs #jackapoo #cockapoo #running #fellrunning
Golden hour is pretty much every hour during this time of year, it makes for great atmospheric photos and interesting light play. We spent a Saturday morning hiking across from Turnhouse Hill to East Kip and back down the valley towards Flotterstone. Another good thing about January is the post Christmas sales, Maria and I have managed to pick up a bunch of new @craghoppersofficial kit, which should also come in handy for our travel plans too... . . . #light #hike #microadventures #craghoppers #mycraghoppers #ordnancesurvey #getoutside #trek #scotland #greatbritain #unitedkingdom #outdoors #adventure #travel #mountains #hills #forest #photography #loch #adventurephotography #naturephotography #nature #fields #farmhouse #pentlandhills #pentlands #instacool #instagood #instaphoto #photojournalism
Time to reflect. Sometimes the reservoirs up in the Pentland Hills are so calm and still that they look like they are frozen in time. Relics of a distant age these reservoirs were carved by nature and exploited by the Victorians. Edinburgh owes a lot to the efforts of nature and man... . . . #light #hike #microadventures #craghoppers #mycraghoppers #ordnancesurvey #getoutside #trek #scotland #greatbritain #unitedkingdom #outdoors #adventure #travel #mountains #hills #forest #photography #loch #adventurephotography #naturephotography #nature #fields #farmhouse #pentlandhills #pentlands #instacool #instagood #instaphoto #photojournalism
"A little bit of heaven, hidden away from the city. Frosty nights, mixed days but magical! Three inches of snow, bright sun, horses in the stable and fine accommodation. All who visited were enthralled." 💚💚#eastsidecottages #winterholiday #eastsidefarm #pentlands #pentlandhills #edinburgh #scotland #hiddenscotland #sawdaystravel #specialplacestostay

Climbed a big FAACKORF hill the other day, we even made a pot of tea 600 metres above sea level because we could! Includes rap album photo, hipster mountaineers and -2 temperatures 😎 I’m only a hipster when walking up mountains bish ... honest 😅 #scotland #pentlands #hillclimb #extremeteamaking

Edinburgh is looking particularly beautiful this morning!
