The Lowther Hills are the highest section of the Southern Upland Way, and make for some of the best walking in the region. The fells are easy to ascend, with vast grassy slopes. Wanlockhead, an old mining village that is Scotland's highest at 1531 feet makes the ideal base. Buses run to Sanquhar, which has a train station.
