Ettrick Pen is a mountain of 2,269 feet on the border of Dumfriesshire and Selkirkshire. It is the highest of the Ettrick Hills, part of the Southern Uplands.

The lower slopes of the mountain are crossed by the Southern Upland Way, and an ascent of Ettrick Pen may be made from the way, climbing from Over Phawhope.

The summit of the hill is crowned by a large and ancient cairn.
