Andrewhinney Hill


Quick Facts
This is the height of the mountain above sea level. However, on the climb, it is the ascent that matters, i.e. the sum of all the uphill parts of the route.
677 m (2221 ft)

This is the standard notation used on Ordnance Survey Landranger maps.

Each reference consists of two letters identifying a 100,000 metre square block then three digits defining the Easting and finally the three digits defining the Northing with reference to the South West corner of the block.

NN166712 is the grid reference for the summit of Ben Nevis. Where you are given the map number ( For Ben Nevis = 41) it is acceptable to omit the two initial letters e.g. 166712. (Instructions on how to read the references are given on the OS maps).

Grid Ref.

Mountain names are usually in Gaelic, the native language of the Scottish Highlands, or have been derived from the old Scots and Norse languages. We give the most commonly accepted meaning, but accept that some of these are disputed.

The UK is covered by 204 Ordnance Survey Landranger 1:50,000 scale maps. Maps numbered 1 to 86 cover Scotland but for the highest mountains (Munros) only 23 maps are required. The name given roughly describes the area covered by the map.

A description of the characteristics of the mountain including any hazards of which you should be aware.

Andrewhinney Hill lies to the E of Moffat and is one of four Grahams in the Ettrick Hills.

It is the highest point of a long ridge which rises to the E of the A708 Moffat to Selkirk road and lies directly across the road from the Corbett White Coomb.

Any convenient parking spot on the A708 to the W can be used for access.

General Considerations
 Temperature decreases by 1degree C for every 100m of ascent.
 Wind usually increases with altitude.
 Visibility can change markedly with cloud level.
 River/Stream levels can increase markedly in one day.

It was so cold up here that my bottles of juice had turned into slush puppies. It was worth it though for the views over to White Coomb.

Andrew Whinney Hill is easily accesses from the Grey Mare`s Tail car park.Leave the car park and turn left.Walk 400 yards and cross the old stone bridge to clear the fast flowing Moffat Water.So starts a very steep ascent.Keep inline with Grey Mare`s Tail waterfall across the road and keep going up the relentless incline.There is a couple of false summits and some stunning views back to the Grey Mare`s Tail with great East/West views of the river snaking from St Mary`s Loch and where it meets the Tail Burn.Nothing much to report from a drab but oh so steep hill.A fence is soon reached.Turn left () Following the fence for a short while until you meet a very well made Cairn.
