The last Pentland hill of note is Mendick Hill, southwest of West Linton. This modest hill of 451m has a pleasing conical shape when viewed from West Linton golf course at the start of the recommended walk for this week. A circuit of the hill involves an undulating walk of some seven miles, virtually all of which is on track and path, with only a short stretch on tarmac – the minor road at Garvald at the southwest end of the hill.
