House Hill

A well-defined drumlin in The Machars of Dumfries and Galloway, House Hill rises to just beyond 50m (164 feet) on the right bank of the River Bladnoch, opposite Barallan Hill, 2½ miles (4 km) west of Wigtown. This hill was named Mill Hill on older Ordnance Survey maps, which gave the name House Hill to what is now Stable Hill, a half-mile (0.7 km) to the southeast. Both are part of an extensive drumlin field. House Hill has its principal axis aligned NNE-SSW and features an elongated tail, both indicating the direction of glacial flow. To add further confusion, there is another drumlin called House Hill just 1½ miles (2.5 km) to the east southeast.
