Activities from Drovers
Here are a few of the activities you can enjoy from Drovers Holiday Cottage without having to venture into Edinburgh. All are ideal for a self catering holiday and provides variety and interest for all the family.
Browse the walking section of this site for suggestions on walks from the cottage.
The paths at Harperrig are a bit rough for cycling but the Pentland Hills do offer a range of trails suitable for mountain bikes. Click here for a pdf leaflet.
Wild Life Refuge
At the West end of the reservoir there is a wild life refuge
Bring your rod! At the west end of the reservoir you can buy a permit to fish wild brown trout. www.harperrigfisheries.com
Not for the faint hearted but we enjoy swimming in the reservoir when the water warms up a bit, so pack your trunks!
If you enjoy twitching, bring your binos or ask to borrow a pair. Harperrig is a haven for dozens of species of birdlife.
If you have your own pony, you could bring it with you! With prior notice, grazing and paddock available and plenty of room for a horse box. Have a look at this leaflet for riding in the Pentlands.
