Parked at the head of the road to Brundeanlaws. Stopped at the steading in Brundeanlaws and asked if it was ok to go to the trig, no problem :o). Started the climb when i crossed the earthwork. Climb to the trig was slow due to the wind, amazing views from the top. Quad track on the top hill noted coming from the NE, maybe joins up with the track as it runs round the back of the hill? Thought i was going to be questioned on the way back by a GOML on a quad, but he was very pleasant and wanted to know if i had seen a lost Sky engineer in a van past the farm!

Parked at the Brundeanlaws road end and and headed up the track. Randomly, a little way along the track, we were met by two friendly dachshunds who walked alongside us as far as a cottage further along, which resulted in jovial banter with their owner, when she spotted her dogs being walked by "strange people"! Onward and upward...found the hill a tough wee climb which took my breath away. Fortunately, the cattle on the summit ran off down the hill as we approached. Appeared quite a horsy area, in fact we found a horseshoe up at the trig! I've always been fascinated by the hills in this area when we've driven along the A68 - the stunning views from the trig certainly did not disappoint and we'll certainly return for further exploration.

Made my way up on the track from Brundeanlaws as previous visitors. Fine weather and great 360 degree views.

Had thought the track from the NW looked GOMLy but it was fine. The only damp morning of the week. Completely shrouded in mist, but by the time I got back I could see it from the cottage window.

vgc, no cap or plug, striking pair of hills, fine view. Hot evening sunshine, last of a 3 dozen trigs 3-day weekend after a 2 month layoff, great to be out.

A pleasant view of the Cheviots, and the woods between the pillar and the A68 to Jedburgh.
