This striking group of hills are a landmark in the Scottish Borders, visible for miles. The Hills are a treasure-trove for archaeologists, botanists, geologists and ornithologists, and offer a mix of peat bogs, grassland, and acidic heath, on a base of volcanic rock. The hills are particularly rich in bird life, with woodland, water, and heath birds aplenty, in addition to the star species, the red grouse. The highest point of the hills reaches 422 metres and overlooks Teviotdale.
