Of the various existing tracks across the Pentland Hills in West Lothian, one of these is linked to "The Cross Borders Drove Road" and thence to all of the rest of the extensive paths networks of Scottish Borders. The Thieves' Road. This has been signposted by Scotways  ( The Scottish Rights of Ways Society ) for many years. The beginning of the Thieves' Road is found near Little Vantage on the A70 south of Edinburgh. There is a car park which is closed before sunset each day and an information board. Just north of the car park are some traces of ruins which may go back to the old inn which stood in that area and served the needs of travellers .
