Loch Skeen is the highest body of water in the Southern Uplands. It is home to peregrines; that nest in the crags of the spectacular Grey Mare's Tail waterfall that plunges 200ft into a narrow gorge.

Park at the National Trust Scotland carpark at the foot of the falls. A 1¼-mile steep mountain path starts at the waterfall viewing area and ends at Loch Skeen.
