Culter Fell is the most popular, highest and most shapely of this rolling range of hills on the Lanarkshire / Borders boundary, south of Biggar. On its own it makes a straightforward short hillwalk; as described here it is the first part of a longer, rough round above the reservoir, passing over Gathersnow Hill and finally Hudderstone, before a grand and easy descent.Terrain - Steep hill path to Culter Fell; continuation becomes boggier but eased by a windfarm track towards Hudderstone before final good grass track for the descent.

NN608377 / FK21 8TY
Meall nan Tarmachan is one of the easier Munros to reach in good weather thanks to a high level start point, but it is really just the start of a rocky ridge traverse which is one of the most interesting in the Southern Highlands. There is a short, avoidable scramble on the descent from Meall Garbh. Good path to Munro summit and long ridge. Meall Garbh has a narrow ridge and an avoidable rocky scramble on the descent. After leaving the ridge the route crosses rough, boggy ground until it reaches a quarry, with only traces of a path. Finish on good track. OS518.3mile / 13.3km
