It feels really remote up here even though Hawick is only a couple of miles away. Magnificent views are well worth the trackless tussocks encountered on the way up. The masts on Meigle Hill Galashiels were easily visible. Numerous other tops tops identifiable. A couple of minor chips out the top but in pretty good nick overall. Walked in from the NW, ample parking opposite the lane in an entrance to an old quarry.

Parking at end of road to Hummelknows Farm. Route as Borderer. Gates provided at all necessary fence crossings, though they are fond of electric fences in this area.

Parked opposite Hummelknows road end and walked up track and through fields...a bit of a guddle this one, involving wading through long grass and thistles, bog hopping and fence climbing; however, on the bright side, none of the electric fences were live, we managed to avoid the cattle, and the rain stayed off! Trig located by a dyke but nice open views across to several notable Borders hills.

Managed to park opposite the entrance to Hummelknows Farm following the signed path to Adderston Lee. Diverged from the path immediately west of the summit choosing the easiest route up. Managed to keep my feet dry even in leaky boots which is unusual in the Southern Uplands in January.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS reading. Overall approach from northwest. Parking opposite the entrance to Hummelknows Farm. Followed the old drove road as mapped to a point due west of summit then beeline route along north side of boundary lines to top. Indicated as WHITE HILL on all maps. At the SE edge of a high grazing plot. Surrounding walls are all lined with electric fences which need to be carefully volted, sorry vaulted. Pillar in good order but top is starting to crack and chip. Spider retains original centre plug with deep indented lettering. Flush bracket on NW face of pillar. Back sighting hole open, others plugged. Views to Eildon Mid Hill, Black Hill NT72, Peniel Heugh, Rubers Law, Cheviot, Greatmoor Hill, Penchrise Pen, Skelfhill Pen.
