Looking north, towards the church and the main mines.
The old beam engine can be seen on the far left.
The long-distance walking route, The Southern Upland Way runs right through
the village and can be seen here across the bottom of the photograph .
A little closer in, showing more detail.
The Lead Mining Museum is also a centre for the teaching of gold panning and
has hosted the World Gold Panning Championships as well as the British and
Scottish Gold Panning Championships for many years.
Wanlockhead has the distinction of being the highest village in Scotland.
