      In 2013, England overtook the Netherlands as Europe's most densely populated country.
      So it's a relief, and something of a surprise, that our anthill UK still holds one huge band of high, wild country right across the land, Atlantic Ocean to North Sea, just north of Northumberland. The Southern Uplands: it's the range that's about as big as the Pennines but you've probably never been to.
      Any hillwalker from anywhere in the UK needs to experience some Southern Uplands. Here are over 80 hills of 2000ft (600m) or more and the smaller ones are also important. And it's a country with its own character: green and gentle, but with hidden surprises.

•      the 44 best hill routes
•      over 100 summits, from Merrick (843m) to Arthur's Seat (251m)
•       Galloway Hills, Pentlands, Cheviots, Lammermuirs, Manor Hills, Lowthers
