4.6 mile walk from Melrose up St. Cuthberts Way onto the Eildons, up onto Eildon Mid Hill first, then along to Eildon Wester Hill and finally contouring north around the Mid Hill onto Eildon Hill North, busy on the hills today, there was also a running race going on across all 3 hills. Hot and sunny but quite clear with great views. Bagged Earlston Black Hill earlier that day.DanTrig22/06/2019

Parked by lake (3-4 cars) Took the long route up, and came back the short direct route (SW)no path shown on map but good path down.G0HIO15/05/2018
From the fishing lake, parked by the roadside. Took the path by the lake, not realising there's no obvious access acroos fences and walls to the path up the hill (on return, took the forestry track). Then straight up and down the obvious path. Only did the Marilyn, last and probably best hill of a long day.Owen B31/03/2018
A very good walk from the fishing lake, which allows a circuit of all 3 hills without having to use the same path twice, except for a short section above the lake. The vehicle track is very muddy because of logging, but the path up the field beyond is fine. Over Mid Hill, on to North hill, and back around the side of Mid hill to Wester Hill. I elected for the bog trot north of the lake, to avoid the muddy track, but not much in it really.Gill08/02/2018
Would be great viewpoint on a clear day.thekirkie pirate10/01/2018

Super walk over this fine group of hills which have been on my wish list since as far back as 2008. Last half hour of the descent to Melrose was in complete darkness but at least it was still light enough to make out the view at the trigAlex C16/10/2017
Supposed to be a day off during a week's stay for J & me in the Borders. After a lazy lunch in Gala & a wander around Melrose, the combination of a sunny afternoon & the gorse in full flower drew us inexorably up St. Cuthbert's Way to these hills. Great views & we had them all to ourselves. Returned more or less the same way being chased off by a brewing thunderstorm which broke just as we got back to the town.NotReallyABagger22/05/2017
With GHC from Maxton along the St Cuthberts Way. Showers but calm.A very pretty walk.Play2End16/04/2017

The BBC weather forecast said cool with low clouds. Well we had warm sunshine with not a cloud in the sky. Have been here many years ago but great views today and another YSM.Walker Dan07/09/2015
I travelled by train from Stonehaven to Tweedbank for a day trip on the first day of public service of the reopened Borders Railway. So the first time this has been possible for 47 years. A day of beautiful warm weather. This hill and its two neighbours sit nicely and prominently above Melrose.pwbellarby06/09/2015

6th hill of 7 today on a route from Galashiels to Melrose climbing Gala Hill, Cauldshiels Hill (closest to the loch),Dod Hill, Cauldshiels Hill (overlooking the Loch) Eildon Wester Hill and then following main track to the col and then a small track up through the scrub to the summit. Fantastic views over Melrose. The lights was fantastic today but very windy. Couldn't stay long as the wind was whipping me! Descent to North with the last Eildon Hill in sight.Dazingdale16/05/2015

Took St Cuthbert's Way out of Melrose then went onto Mid Hill, North Hill and ENE for 1/2 mile before heading back to Melrose, within the hill enclosure as far as St Cuthberts Way to retrace the last 1/2 mile.
