VISITING THE RESERVE
How to get there
From the Edinburgh bypass (A720), take the A68 south, continuing through Pathhead. Five miles further on, the road climbs up to Soutra Hill. At the top of the hill, turn into the layby on left.
Getting onto the reserve
Linn Dean is situated north of the layby at the top of Soutra Hill. There are no maintained paths on Linn Dean, and visitors must take care of the steep, wet and uneven ground conditions. Visitors are advised to wear footwear with a good grip suitable for these conditions. The reserve is grazed by cattle, meaning dogs should be kept on a lead under close control at all times.
The reserve is grazed by cattle in the winter. Please keep dogs under strict control at all times. Take care on steep, wet and uneven ground. Footwear with a good tread is recommended.
