Old Photograph Enterkin Pass Scotland

Old photograph of Enterkin Pass, a pass which descends into the valley of the Enterkin Burn crossing between East Mount Lowther and Lowther Hill to the South Wast of Wanlockhead, Scotland. The Enterkin Pass was an old pack horse route through the hills from Dumfries to Glasgow. The route was used mainly for extracting lead to the Solway coast and was never viable as a main route north because of its height. There is no road through there now though there is a track for walkers into the centre of the hills. The Enterkin Pass was the location of a 1684 Covenanter ambush of a party of Dragoons during the Killing Time.
