Well timed just a few minutes before local sunset with a fine view of all the snowy hills around and the twilight colours in the sky above the Cheviots looking superb already.

This was a straightforward find, just a few yards into a field off the Hadden road. Cap in place with deep lettering, and one s/h open. Enjoyable couple of days in Roxburghshire.

Nice and easy trig to bag close by the road, pretty decent views too. Trig rather overgrown at the moment and we had to wade through knee deep nettles etc to reach it!

I could hear a bird twittering. On closer inspection it was located on the pillar. The June summer growth partially conceals this trig. An easily accessed roadside trig that commands some fantastic views, especially on the longest day of light of the year. Concealed barbed wire fence in undergrowth. First time I have made use of my first aid kit.

First of 8 easy bags today. Gate between the two fields was locked, I tripped over and snagged myself on some old rusty barbed wire in the patchy hedge. Not a great start to what was a very good day. Good all round views.
