Broughton Heights and Trahenna Hill

Routes up hills in the Southern Uplands near Broughton

South of the Pentlands and north of the River Tweed these fine little hills give an excellent walk or run along their well define crests. Fences aid navigation, terrain is generally soft grass underfoot and the views are expansive.


Main route summary


The main route on this page starts to the south-west of the hills, just outside the village of Broughton on the Buchan Way - a lovely 21km low-level walk through the hills from Broughton to Peebles.

There are two alternative routes also described, one which begins from Kirkurd to the north and adds in some more peaks and the other is a description of the 'Two Breweries' race route which includes Trahenna Hill in its itinerary.
