Sharp little hill on border of Chillingham estate. Fine viewpoint. About 1km ene of pillar, in Ros Hill Wood, is Ox Eye Stone, a rock outcrop used as a boundary marker. The 1:25 000 OS map has (B Mk) next to it. Presumably Bench Mark, I can't recall seeing another one marked as such on a map.

Very easy to get to up a short steep rough path through heathery hillside. Fabulous views and a seperate view pointer / wind shelter built into the stone wall that runs alongside the ridge of the hill. The wall means you can't get a photograph of the trig point that includes the views north or west, otherwise I'd have given this 10/10! ~~~ Second visit 20/11/16 with the girls on a lovely day across all of north Northumberland but here! TP mired in bank of freezing fog, no view today :-(

Great view out to sea and west to the snow covered Cheviot & Hedgehope Hill. Probably called "castle" because it's an Iron Age hillfort; the path up from the road crosses the fort's bank-and-ditch shortly before you reach the trig.

Revisit. For photographs and GPS reading. Ros Castle. Approached from south. Parked on NE verge of road at NU080249, just west of high point. From there, a footpath leads to the top of the hill. Pillar in good condition with memorial plaque fitted to east face. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces south ~189. Vented through west sight hole. An adjacent viewing platform with four separate topographs highlights various locations in the 360 panorama with long distance views from this top.
