Green Lowther and Lowther Hill, Wanlockhead

The Lowther Hills have steep flanks but gentle rolling summits. The two highest, Green Lowther and Lowther Hill, both have radio masts or other impedimentia on their summits - including a (private) tarmac road. This walk climbs both as well as the lower but unspoilt East Mount Lowther; the views are superb.


Good hill paths with sections also on private tarred road.
