Parked at Corby Linn car park. A lovely walk through Traquair Plantation. A gate allows access onto open pasture. Followed the wall south. Reminds me of the Sound of Music. Fabulous location and great views. Philphaugh Estate provide a red sign trial through the woods as well as a seat next to pillar to ponder. South side of pillar shows evidence of flaking.Spider is intact. Last vestige of a whitewash colour.

Route from Corbylinn car park, more or less due W along fine track, steepening up through Traquair Plantation up onto rough pasture. On leaving the plantation follow the wall round as the TP is on the W side of the wall, else cut a corner and go through a gate then turn half R and go through a broken gate just below the TP. Really fantastic views, maybe because the weather was so good and the air clarity really clear, but I think the views are better than from nearby and much higher Three Bretheren. The bench to rest your weary or unfit body on by the wall is worth an extra point BTW...!

A nice walk up the tracks through the woodland from the Corbylinn car park to the east. Fantastic views in all directions from the top - the purple glow of the heather on the nearby Three Bretheren was spectacular when the sun caught it. Minor damage to the concrete on the southern face, no doubt frost damage.

Lovely walk through the woods and fields from Philiphaugh visitor centre. Very impressed with the 360 degree panoramic views from the trig, and very thoughtful of the landowner to place a bench beside the trig, ideal for our lunch stop :)

In the Philliphaugh area on an Easter Monday walk so thought I'd revisit this pillar. No cows this time and better weather. Great 360 views and well worth a 7.

A lovely walk up through the woods, prior to running around the woods over the river at Bowhill. Intact and good views to Selkirk, Cheviot and all that stuff beyond Hawick (Caldcleugh Head et al)

Second visit. For photographs. Harehead Hill is two miles west of the Borders town of Selkirk. The hilltop is grazing land in a walker friendly area where routes are way-marked and there are styles over walls and fences. An easy walk from Selkirk, leave the main road at NT456286 and the farm road will lead to a series of woodland paths which lead up to Harehead Hill. The pillar is in good condition. Spider retains an OS plug with deep stamped font. Flush bracket faces southwest. Open view includes Eildon Mid Hill.
