Happy New Year, fellow trigpoint geeks!! :-) Parked at the quarry and walked up the field to the right - quite a steep wee hill! Weather too dull to fully appreciate the views and it was rather chilly so we didn't linger long at the trig. Great to get 2020 off to a trigging start anyhow :-)

Moi posing at the trig :-)

Our 3rd and final trig of the day. Another wow factor in terms of views. Parked next to quarry. An easy walk to summit. Trig commands great views to surrounding similar summits. Pillar located within a hillfort. We spent ages up here exploring the ramparts. The great weather conditions and view opportunities must push this to a high score.

Parking & route as per Clochandighter. Didn't stay long as rain set in just before I reached the pillar.

Parked by the quarry, walked up from the gate to its left. Superb views across Border country. The trig is in the middle of the defence banks of a complex Iron Age hillfort with a defended entrance and attached, possibly a bit more recent, enclosures and house sites

Parked at the end of the track to the west and then up by the quarry to the summit. Interesting faulting in the quarry. Decent views.

Absolutely loved the view of the snowy-topped Pentlands and Eildon Hills from this trig. Buzzard soaring overhead seemed very happy too! Asphalt plug.

Roxburghshire. This is a great little hill with views all round, including back down to Southdean rivet. Asphalt plug.

Hill fort location, parked down on A6088. Commanding position, hill is sheep pasture. Views pretty much 360 degrees, Wauchope Forest to the south dominates. Pillar has remnants of white paint. Plug missing, hole asphalt filled.

Asphalt plug replacement. Traces of paint. S sighthole closed, others open [E - W has clear view through]. Concrete base visible. Distant views all round but murky weather approaching from the W which curtailed some of these. Neighbouring trig pillar clearly visible!!
