Beattock Hill

A modest summit in NE Dumfries and Galloway, Beattock Hill rises to 263m (862 feet) a mile (1.5 km) west of Beattock, with a notable hill-fort, which is a scheduled ancient monument, occupying a lesser eastern summit. The oval Iron-Age fort is protected by an inner stone wall (up to 3.5m / 11½ feet in width) and an outer ditch around the base of the hill. The entrance is from the southwest and the fort encloses an area of 72m by 30.5m (236 feet by 100 feet). The Southern Upland Way and Annandale Way merge on the Crooked Road to the southeast of this hill.
