Parked at Gattonside Mains, nice parking area by the wooden fence. As many other people, walked up the southern upland way and across the field. The small depression / quarry next door has become a bonfire pit for the farmer but doesn't spoil the views.

Great little detour from the Southern Upland Walk, for a great all round view on a clear night.

Great walk along the southern upland way from Gattonside then along the northern side of a dry stone wall following the o/h power lines to the pillar. Terrific weather, 19 degrees in April! Good views to the east, south and west.

Easily accessed from the Southern Upland Way during a circular walk from Gattonside that took in the Byres Lochs. Decent views across to the Eildons and Black Hill.

Another detour from the southern upland way. And a bit easier then the last one. Follow the pylons east from the main path. Good views toward Galashiels from here.
