Walking in the Southern Uplands

Walking in the Southern Uplands

by: Ronald Turnbull
This guidebook describes 44 varied day walks and over 100 summits in the Southern Uplands of Scotland, stretching south-west from Edinburgh to the English border, including the Galloway and Pentland Hills. The walks vary in length between 2 and 29km, so there is something for all seasons and all abilities in this remote and rugged hill country.
The Scottish Southern Uplands is a range that is about as big as the English Pennines. It is wild hill country, with over 80 hills of 2000ft or more, and it boasts a real remoteness that is difficult to find elsewhere. All hillwalkers should experience these wonderfully characterful landscapes: green and gentle, but with hidden surprises and remote escapes.

The routes are suitable from spring to autumn, and on winter days with good weather and snow conditions. Each route provides colour Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 scale mapping, information on distance, ascent, time, maximum altitude and terrain, as well as details of any variants or shortcuts. With notes on points of interest along the way as well as on transport and accommodation, the guide gives all the information walkers need. The book is illustrated throughout with numerous colour photographs.
