Lowther Hill

Located on the border of South Lanarkshire and Dumfries and Galloway, Lowther Hill gives its name to a range of hills which form part of the Southern Uplands. Lying 7 miles (11 km) east of Sanquhar, it is the second highest peak of the Lowther Hills, rising to a height of 725m (2378 feet). Close to the summit is a distinctive lollipop-shaped radar tower which is operated by National Air Traffic Services (NATS) as an important part of the British air traffic control system. The Southern Upland Way passes over the summit.
