White Coombe, a hill in the Southern Uplands, has an elevation of 821 m (2,694 ft) and is the highest point in the historic county of Dumfriesshire. The summit is the highest point of a network of ridges, named the Moffat Hills, that lie to the northeast of the vibrant town of Moffat.
The easiest ascent to the summit can be made from the National Trust for Scotland car park, located near Grey Mare’s Trail waterfall, a 60-metre hanging valley waterfall. A circular walk takes you along stone footpath to Loch Skeen where the terrain turns to boggy moorland.
