Broom Hill

A little hogback in The Machars of Galloway, Broom Hill rises to 35m (114 feet) overlooking the River Bladnoch, a quarter-mile (0.4 km) northeast of Crows and 1¼ miles (2 km) south southeast of Spittal. This is part of an extensive drumlin field, with its principal axis aligned N-S indicating the direction of glacial flow. Confusingly there is another Broom Hill only a half-mile (1 km) to the north, on the opposite bank of the River Bladnoch.
