Windy Standard is a mountain of 2,290 feet in Kirkcudbrightshire, amongst the Carsphairn Hills. It stands close to the county border with Ayrshire, which is marked here by the infant Water of Deugh, a river rising on Windy Standard’s slopes.

The name of the hill is apparently borne out in its climate, for parts of the slopes are now as festooned with wind turbines as with trees.
