Southern Uplands

A view of the Dalveen Pass looking towards the Lowther Hills. The ridge coming into the valley from the left is Steygail, the first element of which is said to come from the Scots word meaning difficult to climb. These glaciated valleys are being eroded at their bases by the meandering streams which undercut the edges of the valley as can be clearly seen in Steygail. The remains of a Roman Road can be found running close to the modern road through the pass.
