    MTB around Edinburgh, Scotland-suggestions?

    I'm traveling to Edinburgh Scotland in June, and I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on where to ride, etc. I will be renting a bike there so I be getting in contact with a local LBS, and they will no doubt have suggestions on where to ride and give me a guide if I choose to hire one. I have seen video of the Pentlands Park area and it seems hilly, but not very technical. Is there riding around the area or a group someone can suggest I check with? The riding date will be June 7th. I'm a proficient rider with good technical skills, and ride 4-5 days per week. I'm 58 however, so I'm not looking to race or do a marathon, just enjoy MTB'ing within a reasonable distance from Edinburgh.

    About an hour south of Edinburgh is Peebles and the Scottish borders area. Epic riding down there. You can hit the traill centers at Innerleithen or Glentress or if you are adventurous pick up some trail maps and ride the 'natural' rides. We did all three and it was a great experience. I am from New England so I found the riding a somewhat less technical but the climbing was pretty tough. Just a beautiful area to ride.
