Date for the diary.....Sunday 23rd April

West Linton Roman Road

Follow the old Roman Road from West Linton to Garvald and return via Medwynhead and West Water reservoir. This road once linked the Roman garrisons at Biggar and Elginhaugh and follows the contour along the side of the Pentland Hills, and is therefore relatively flat but largely unsurfaced. Crossing over vast tracts of moorland this route is big on expansive views and short on climbs - It will be a big hit with those who don't favour the lung-busting climbs.


Start/Finish: West Linton Golf Club - Medwyn Road, West Linton EH46 7HN  (limited transport available with Swift Trails leaving Kingsmeadows carpark, Peebles @ 9:15am)


Start time: 10:00am (arrive 15 minutes early)


Terrain: Unsurfaced farm tracks and multi-use trails. A few small burn crossings. Quiet country lanes.


Finish: 12:30pm    


Distance: 20km


Technical difficulty: GREEN   Fitness rating: GREEN
