The Pentland Hills is a range of mountains running for about ten
miles from south-west to north-east. The hills lie to the
south-west of Edinburgh.
Duddingston Loch is one of three lochs
in Queens' Park, close to the centre of Edinburgh. In the
19th century Duddingston Loch was used for recreation - skating
and curling - but in recent times it is more likely to be the
scene of picnics and family outings to feed the ducks.
