Tinto Hill (near Lanark)

Tinto Hill, Biggar, South Lanarkshire, ML12 6NH

Tinto Hill is the graceful cone shaped hill on Lanarkshire’s southern horizon and one of the most iconic views from Lanark. At 707 metres it is the highest point in central Scotland and the perfect introduction to hill walking. Tinto Hill is located around 13 minutes' drive from Lanark (7 miles) via the A73.

The best reason for climbing Tinto hill is the excellent view. On the clearest days the view takes in the Lake District, the mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland, Ailsa Craig and Arran in the Firth of Clyde, the Arrochar Alps and as far north as Lochnagar in the Cairngorms.
