Donation Scheme

The Pentland Hills Regional Park covers an area of 10,000 hectares with over 100km (62 miles) of paths. Approximately 600,000 people enjoy recreating in the park every year; walking, cycling, horse riding and fishing to name but a few of the recreational activities.

The staff that manage the Regional Park carry out a large number of projects in order to increase the visitor’s enjoyment of the Park. These include: path construction and maintenance; signage and waymarking; installation of access gates; habitat improvements for wildlife; and improvement of facilities at visitor centres and other popular sites. There are always more to do than resources allow. That is where the donations scheme can help.

The Donations Scheme is a simple way for people to put something back into the Regional Park. The scheme creates a way for a general donation to be made towards environmental improvements in the Park. Donations can be made via cheque, bank transfer or cash can be placed into the donation boxes situated in Flotterstone, Harlaw and Threipmuir Car Parks.

All funds raised are used only for new ‘added value’ projects on the ground and not for the day to day running of the Service.

Completed projects:

  • Blacksprings path upgrade (2019)
  • Replacement of gate at Castlelaw (2018)
  • Replacement of Daisy Dell bridge (2016)
  • Upgrading of steps leading into Bonaly Country Park from Torduff Reservoir (2012)
  • A new recycled plastic seat for the Flotterstone Glen (2011)
  • 500 copies of 500 copies of the 'Horse Riding in the Pentland Hills Regional Park' leaflet (2010)
