On this page you'll find a list of hill-walking routes in the Southern Uplands of Scotland. The routes are grouped into hill ranges, with the most northerly at the start of the page and the most southerly at the bottom of the page.

Many starting points and tracks everywhere make these hills so accessible and create endless route possibilities

More remote than the Northern Pentlands and with fainter paths and fewer tracks.

A high-level circuit over varied terrain. Tracks lower down give way to faint paths higher up.

More runnable terrain than the west Moorfoots, high-level grass covered circuits with excellent views.

Above the picturesque village of Broughton, these grass and heather clad hills with well-defined crests give fine walking.

A fabulous hill sitting alone above the Clyde. Stunning views for very little effort

South of Biggar lie the sprawling Culter Hills, in which Culter Fell is the highest

The three Corbetts to the east of the River Tweed source sit amongst quiet farmland and forestry
