Halfway between Biggar and Peebles is the picturesque village of Broughton surrounded by farmlands and forestry, above which stand grass and heather clad rolling hills with well-defined crests. The highest of these is Pyked Stane Hill standing at the northern edge of Broughton Heights.

The most pleasant approach up Broughton Heights begins by Shepherds Cottage on the John Buchan Way, just outside Broughton Village.

A fine alternative begins from Ladyurd Forest, by Kirkurd to the north and adds in some more peaks.
