Preparation leads to an enjoyable day out on the hills
Before venturing out on any outdoors activity, always check the weather forecast before you leave. The Mountain Weather Information Service provides regularly updated and detailed forecasts for all upland areas in Scotland. To help you be prepared, the latest forecast covers the Southern Uplands, and can be found on the links at the foot of this page.
Also make sure you have the right equipment for the activity you will be taking part in and be prepared for any eventuality.
