Still in good shape but changes since last visit to the hill. A lot of forest planting on the north side and some more turbines. The trade route from Portmore Loch is going to change a bit in the coming years. Wet and nobody else on the hill.

Parked on roadside layby nt257515 followed a circular 8km walk to summit. Fantastic panoramic views shows The Pentlands, Arthurs Seat, and Moffatt Hills.Trig stands aligned between a corner of fences and a possible burial cairn. Kept stopping to soak in these views. Some beautiful dragon flies hovering alongside the loch.

Good condition pillar with FB facing south-ish. All sightholes plugged. Cap missing with asphalt plug present. Parked at Boreland Farm after asking permission at the farm. Steepish walk up firm quad tracks to the top but splendid reveal of the entire valley, Pentlands, Arthur's Seat, Salisbury Crags and long views to Fife and North Berwick Law etc. Deceptively good hill!

Parked at the entrance to Portmore Reservoir and at the dam followed the track clockwise around the lake and up the eastern side of the plantation. Then followed the fence line to the summit dodging a couple of showers. Came back along the rock escarpment to the south west and returned via the reservoir and on to West Loch pillar. Great 360 views.

Walked up from Eddleston through Boreland Farm. A steep pull up quad tracks saw me on top. Stunning Views. Have wanted to do this hill for 50 years. Finally made it.

One may not like the intrusion of wind farms, but the roads do make the walking very much easier, ie. from Blackhope Scar over Bowbeat Hill

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 3rd April 1943 costing 14.1s.0d. Later in 1943 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NT48/8 in the Edinburgh block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1959. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in August 1981.

Traverse of the Moorfoots bus to bus.. Easy start before the bogs started. Long before any windfarms. Visited since.
