|Easy walk up to splendid domed mausoleum which ex India military top brass , Sir Thomas Monteith Douglas (1798-1868), had built for himself, close to the site of Ancrum Moor battle 1545. Somewhat incongruous sleeping lions and star studded roof . Under restoration, nearly complete? Ground is disturbed so hard to say where natural HP is.||Denise||21/01/2019|
|Track from the A68. Mausoleum currently closed for renovation. Entrance guaded by sleeping lions. I thought the natural high point was more the N side of the track than the built up ground around the mausoleum.||RichardM||21/01/2019|
|Parking: On A68 NT 60326 29062. Route: Followed St Cuthbert's way to Lilliards stone then SW heading towards the Monteath mausoleum.||David Evans||14/09/2017|
|There's a well-used and signposted path through the woods parallel to the A68 from the caravan site. Bit obscure to start with. Avoids parking issues/walking up the A68.||maknipe||29/04/2015|
|P at layby nr holiday park. Walked up road then track to the mausoleum. Back by path through tress to H P.||chrisbien||16/06/2013|
|From east along track, parking a bit sketchy but no other option apparent. Mausoleum much larger than I'd realised.||agentmancuso||05/07/2012|
