Upper Glen Sax and Dun Rig in Selkirkshire

Dun Rig

Dun Rig is a hill amongst the Manor Hills, part of the Southern Uplands. It reaches 2,441 feet and is the county top of Selkirkshire.

Dun Rig is a hill of two summits and two counties. Each of its summits forms a turning point on the boundary between the two shires of Selkirk and Peebles, while the saddle between them at the head of Upper Glen Sax is left to Selkirkshire alone.

The name 'Dun Rig' ('brown ridge') is a common one in the Middle Shires, but that at the head of Glen Sax is the best known. (Read more)
