A quick bag after earlier walk at the Three Breathen - Parked by old Victorian Gatehouse - Meigle - Meigle Potts - Hill summit and mast and ancient cairn as sun sets - descended to be greerted by Rooks massing on wires as they gather to roost for the night.briandavies06/10/2018

From Gala side. Largely overcast but not raining. Snow drifts at top. Rounsfell06/04/2018
Plenty of room to park just beyond the water filtering station (Galashiels side). Good grassy track to obvious trig point next to the wall.Owen B02/04/2018
From the lay by on the A72, after getting the hump with trying to park amongst the breeding pens in Clovenfords. Over the gate, up to the wall, followed SW to a hole which allows an easy wriggle under the barbed wire. Across 2 fields, gates, onto the open moor, and a steep, interminable plod to the trig. You can't get lost, just head for the masts. Not one of the best hills around here. Hints and tips: avoid Galashiels unless you're a fan of bad signposting and traffic jams.Gill08/02/2018
Directly up from layby at NT462373 - over the first wall then gates where you need them.Chris Peart29/10/2017
Day trip by train to Galashiels. Solo. Followed path from Filter Station to summit of Meigle Hill. Visited Wallace's Putting Stone, which is a little inside the forest. Continued to Mount Skep, Touting Birks Hill and Gala Hill. Mixture of cloud and sun with a few drops of rain.pwbellarby12/09/2017
Circuit from Cloven Ford. Either the putting stone is not very impressive or we couldn't find it.mindlessflogger28/07/2017

From estate below treatment plant.rhalstead31/12/2016
Parked just beyond end of water treatment plant NT 47841 36686 (enough room for about 3 cars). Good track to summit. Also found Wallace's Putting Stone with the help of directions by a local. (For stone, go over wall into trees by the big cairn and follow the track adjacent to the wall for about 30 yards, the track then veers into the woods for a few yards and brings you to Wallace's stone).David Evans17/12/2016
Whilst staying with the Outlaws for the weekend. From Clovenfords via Meigle. There is a signposted circular walk taking in the summit although I used the track to the masts in both directions.raffemeister13/08/2016
Straightforward ascent from Clovenfords in warm, sunny conditions, but why are three masts needed on the summit, when they seem to serve the same purpose? There is a large summit cairn over the wall, but not the highest point.JohnW07/06/2016

From the roundabout in Clovenfords, heading NE, parked in Station Yard (first left). Walked across the road and, walked NE then through the farmyard to the track up Meigle Hill. Was advised upon my return to the farmyard that this was not the correct access to the hill.aul-fogie13/08/2015

after Sell Moor Hill. Parked in Clovenfords - Station Way I think. then followed waymarked path, though there isn't a sign at the farm gate. Would have been very easy stroll but for the storm and driving rain. Weather so bad I didn't do the HuMP opposite.Thearlaichdubh27/12/2013
Sunny, calm, mild, good views.iangalbraith01/12/2013
struggled to find the start of the walk but the farmer showed me - he is clearly familiar with Marilyn baggersAlisonFox66 07/01/2012
From Meigle. 4x4 vehicle track all the way to summit. My 100th marilyn of 2011, yeah!Topographer5720/12/2011
