Bank Hill

A little summit in The Machars of Galloway, Bank Hill rises to just beyond 50m (164 feet) to the northwest of Barneam Hill, 2 miles (3 km) west of Newton Stewart. A patch of woodland cuts across its northwestern slopes, while the Challoch Burn flows to the south. This is a drumlin, one of a number hereabouts, with its principal axis aligned NNW-SSE suggesting the direction of flow of an ancient ice sheet. There are five other summits named Bank Hill in this area; 5 miles (8 km) to the west, 6 miles (10 km) to the southwest, 7½ miles (12 km) to the south, 10 miles (16 km) to the south southeast and 11 miles (18 km) to the west southwest.
