Black Hill

A teardrop-shaped summit in The Machars of Galloway, Black Hill rises to 68m (223 feet) a quarter-mile (0.5 km) northwest of White Hill, 1½ miles (2.5 km) west of Newton Stewart. This is part of an extensive drumlin field, with its principal axis aligned N-S suggesting the direction of flow of an ancient ice sheet. There are several other nearby drumlins also called Black Hill; 4½ miles (7 km) to the south southeast, 7 miles (11 km) to the west, 7½ miles (12 km) to the west southwest, 10½ miles (17 km) to the west southwest, together with the Black Hill of Barmore 7 miles (11 km) to the west southwest.
