Queensberry is the most southerly of the Lowther Hills, its position making it a prominent local landmark and an extensive viewpoint. The hill has mostly featureless, wet grassy slopes but the ascent from Mitchellslacks makes best use of ATV tracks. An alternative rougher return is given over the distinctive peak of Wee Queensberry.


Track and then faint grassy ATV track and path to summit. Alternative return route given is rough and pathless.
