WANLOCKHEAD


At 1531 feet above sea level, Wanlockhead is the highest village in Scotland, located on the famous Southern Upland Way coast-to-coast walk.

The paternal family (Mitchell) of the Baroness hails from Wanlockhead in Dumfrieshire, Scotland. Some areas of the village are named after the Mitchell family.

The isolated location of Wanlockhead was used for the filming of the BBC1 comedy drama 'Hope Springs', and featured the Lotus Lodge in 2009.  Here is a short BBC video clip showing some local scenes.

The popular Wanlockhead Inn - the highest pub in Scotland! - has information on their website here.

Below, Pat shares some photographs from years gone by. Those wearing a poncho and with her briard Dino were taken over 30 years ago!
The cottages of Mitchell Place (1-4 inc) shown below were built around 1910 and are Category B listed buildings.
