Hill walking routes in the Southern Uplands


Hill walking routes in the Southern Uplands of Scotland are listed below starting from north and working southwards.

Nearer the bottom of the page is a table to help you find routes by distance, ascent, difficulty of terrain, quality of scenery and even by Munro and Corbett count.


1 - North Pentlands



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

2 - South Pentlands



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

3 - Moorfoots west



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

4 - Moorfoots east



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

5 - Broughton Heights and Trahena



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

6 - Tinto



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

7 - Culter Fell



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

8 - Above Tweedsmuir



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