Walking around Harperrig in the Pentlands near Edinburgh

Harperrig Reservoir

View east over Harperrig from There is no path around Harperrig reservoir so its a rough walk one best to do in wellies. Our favourite time of year is in the winter when the ground is frozen hard! Harperrig will shortly be designated a Local Nature Reserve (LNR) and this walk will take round to some of its best features including the Wild Life Refuge at Cairns Castle & Gull Island both at the west end.  Ospreys have been seen fishing here and Otters take advantage of the fish stocked by the fishery!
