Parked east of trig at about NT595153, up via track, a sheep pasture, and then freestyle for the last bit up steep moorland. Wonderful views across Border Country on a clear sub-zero day. The top is ringed by two banks; the outer one is probably the defences of an Iron Age hillfort, the inner one is probably a later fort as it is said to include Roman stonework, maybe the rubble from a destroyed Roman signal station on the summit. See https://hillforts.arch.ox.ac.uk.

....off on our travels again, staying just outside Kirk Yethom, great to be up in this wonderful area again, this hill seems visible from everywhere, fast becoming as we go wandering in the Cheviots later in the week, dramatic rain shower coming in from the north.

Walked up from Denholm via the disused quarry NNW of pillar. A decent toposcope hides the spider. Good views generally, but especially of the Cheviots and Carter Bar hills.

A very enjoyable circular walk up from Denholm. Nice and easy climb up to the summit and gorgeous views from the top. Lovely well maintained trig complete with Borders Exploration Group plaques.

Walked up marked track from near Hallrule. Managed to get car parked so it wasn't blocking the gateway or track but might be more difficult at harvest time. Three mile round trip. Good all round views but a bit hazy today and windy.

Parked on the minor road south of Denholm on their festival day (had to dodge lots of horses and drunks). Follow the path for Denholm Hill then a bit of planning to avoid fields with crops and cattle. Shame that the spider plate has been covered over when perhaps a separate observation pillar would have been better. Local landmark seen from all over the borders with great views.

Walked up track from NT593142, then becomes sheep pasture and heather. Top of hill is a rocky outcrop that looks impressive from a distance. Good views. Pillar has some white paint remaining but plug is missing, hole unfilled.

I visited this on the morning of my wedding, and to my surprise I discovered two naked women at the top! (Needless to say, they weren't British.) A bizarre experience... and it was fun watching them rushing to put their clothes back on when a family arrived, with young children in tow, a little later! P.S. The wedding took place at nearby Dryburgh abbey, which I can recommend.

About 15 metres SSE, in the cleft of the hill summits, there is a memorial plaque celebrating 2000 years of religious worship there.

Bagged whilst walking Borders Abbeys Way between Hawick and Jedburgh. This was a diversion off the route. No recognised route to summit but probably the best way is to leave your car at NT596175 and follow Borders Abbeys Waymarkers to NT589173 (waymarker). Walk SSW across field to a gate just to the right of the forest then ascend up across rough ground towards the rounded hill to the right of Rubers Law (this avoids the worse of the long grass/bracken). On almost reaching the summit of this rounded hill, bear left alongside wall to a point where three walls meet. There is a gate here. Go through it and continue along the opposite side of the wall for 100metres then veer right to a grassy col. Several sheep paths lead to the craggy summit. The view will be worth the effort. Total time for ascent from road around 50 minutes.

Striking igneous hill just north of the Cheviots. Very fine viewpoint, and a lovely walk up, despite the wet snow. Trig in good condition except for missing plug.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 2nd August 1953 costing 38.17s.0d. In 1957 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT72/T85 in the Jedburgh secondary block. Flush bracket S7496 was levelled for height in 1958. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in October 1986. Good views all round.
