The camera gives a good idea of the current weather on the Pentland Hills, just south of Edinburgh. Whether you're planning a walk in the Pentlands or staying in one of our holiday cottages, we hope you find it useful.
The camera is at Westside, the other side of the valley from Eastside. It points roughly north, towards the West Kip with Balerno and Edinburgh behind.
Remember, when enjoying the Pentlands please do so responsibly. Take a quick look at the Outdoor Access Code before you head out.
Our Holiday Cottages
We have four beautifully converted holidays cottages for 2, 4 or 6 people. All are located right in the heart of the Pentlands at Eastside Farm. There are fabulous views and walking right on the doorstep - the hills literately surround the cottages. If you like looking at the webcam, come and sample the real thing! Remember, we're only a 15 minute drive from central Edinburgh.
Walking in the Pentlands
The Pentland Hills make the ideal getaway for the hillwalker looking for a convenient rural bolthole. The Regional Park's accessibility from Edinburgh makes it perfect for a quick jaunt. However, the spectacular scenery is interesting and challenging enough to warrant longer stays. Eastside Cottages is one of the very few places to stay that is actually in amongst the hills. This means that if you stay with us, no driving or trekking along roads to get to the start of your walk is needed.
The hills are crisscrossed with paths to explore. Details of our favourite walks can be found on the farm & hills page. Don't miss the "Pentland Peak" walk. Starting from Eastside Cottages the walk leads over the picturesque peaks to Flotterstone, the local pub, and a well earned pint!
Welcome to our heather-covered hills, long walks & breathtaking views.
