From the golf clubhouse. Steep, sweaty walk up. Soon cooled off at the top in the breeze. Splendid view.

A slog to the summit on a sweltering day but well worth the effort for the fantastic 360 degree panorama. Brilliantly white painted; missing plug; all sightholes open. Great spot!!

Super walk over this fine group of hills which have been on my wish list since as far back as 2008. Last half hour of the descent to Melrose was in complete darkness but at least it was still light enough to make out the view at the trig

I noticed some weeks ago from the garden that the pillar had received a new white coat but this was our first visit since the transformation. I must say that the caretaker has done a terrific job and managed to keep the metalwork free of paint. As always beautiful all-round views.

BBC weather forecast said "low cloud and cool" but on the way up and on the top it was clear blue skies and hot. A while since we were last up here and today there was heather in flower on the lower slopes, although higher up it was past its best. Great views today and deserving of a 10 rating.

3rd visit. The Eildon Hills dominate the Central Borders. Topograph next to trig pillar. Land used for grazing. Trig pillar in good order, but the spider is missing its cap (stolen since 19/05/1990) and the centre hole is being filled with debris. All four sighting holes open, also filled with debris. Flush bracket faces ENE. Views to almost everywhere in the Borders and beyond. Nearby notables include: Black Hill NT72, Rubers Law, Minto Hill, and Meigle Hill.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 7th June 1953 costing 31.8s.0d. In 1957 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NT72/9 in the Jedburgh block. Flush bracket S7474 was levelled for height in 1958. This station was last maintained by the OS September 1986. Long views in all directions. This top is easily identified from afar too.
