Route Description

This old route through Roslin Glen has of necessity had to move over the years, landslips being a by-product of the underlying geology. While we will try to continually update our online information, please look out for onsite advisory signage or waymarking and act accordingly based on common sense. 

Heritage Information

The Hawthornden Path, perhaps better known as Roslin Glen, is a right of way vindicated in court. It was the first path ever signposted by ScotWays.

This old route through Roslin Glen has been subject to several landslips over the years, but rights of way can be more-or-less defined and migrate to the accessible line. The Midlothian Paths Group in conjunction with the Council's Ranger Service have been proactive in working on this through route, so it should be signed and waymarked.
