4th of round from Tweedbank station via Border Abbeys Way. Came from much more impressive Cauldshiels South via dam. Summit is about 5m inside clear felled tree boundary over barbed wire fence. Best escape route is back to field and back to BAW. Pleasant circuit for those who are fed up with the Eildons.Thearlaichdubh20/12/2016
Round of three. hill now clear felled so very ugly surroundings. Fortunately the brash isn't too fierceColin Crawford15/03/2016
2nd hill of 7 today on a route from Galashiels to Melrose, visiting Gala Hill, then dropping in to explore Abbotsford House, following Borders Abbeys way before veering off to climb by side of conifer woodland. Summit is just inside woodland next to Beech tree with view onto the Eildon Hills. Descended steeply making my own way to the loch where I dropped back onto the Borders Abbeys way for a short while.Dazingdale16/05/2015
