Ettrick Hills

A group of summits within the central Southern Uplands, the Ettrick Hills lie to the southeast of Moffat Dale, 6 miles (10 km) east northeast of Moffat, and are the source of the Ettrick Water, Garwald Water, Wamphray Water, Dryfe Water and the White Esk. The boundary between Dumfries & Galloway and the Scottish Borders forms a great horseshoe through these hills following the summits of Ettrick Pen (692m / 2270 feet; the highest of the range), Hopetoun Craig (632m / 2073 feet), Wind Fell (665m / 2181 feet), Capel Fell (678m / 2224 feet), Smidhope Hill (644m / 2112 feet), White Shank (622m / 2040 feet), Fauldside Hill (568m / 1863 feet) and Bodesbeck Law (665m / 2181 feet). The Southern Upland Way winds its way between these hills. The other main summits are Loch Fell (688m / 2257 feet), Croft Head (637m / 2089 feet), Graham's Law (602m / 1975 feet), Cowan Fell (564m / 1850 feet) and Jock's Shoulder (536m / 1758 feet). The Moffat Hills lie to the northwest.
