Took advice from a previous logger and obtained key from Lothain Estate to climb the spiral staircase of Waterloo Monument. Well worth 5 to see panoramic views that include Torness and the Berwick coastline. Pillar is situated 15m NE of monument and within a hillfort. Spider top intact. Extra marks for interest. Ample parking at Harestane Visitor Centre. A labyrinth of routes to the pillar and trig.

I wanted a gentle day after 2 days wild camping and walking along very rough terrain of the Scottish Watershed and the Border. This fitted the bill and had a huge monument and hill fort to boot. My birthday is the 18th June so although I am not that interested in military or battle histories, the Battle of Waterloo is a date I never had difficulty remembering. I parked at NT646266 and followed track up to the TP. Very impressive site with hill fort and monument with views of the Eildon Hills . I extended the walk by following a track SW to the road which I crossed and followed the track back to the car.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 15th May 1953, cost not on record. Flush bracket S7471 was levelled for height in 1955. This marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NT72/25 in the Jedburgh block in 1957 and was last maintained by the OS in September 1986. The distinctive Waterloo Monument shares this top making the location easily identifiable from afar. Monument closed and falling apart at time - since restored.
