From the road summit after Knowes Hill. russell61 can relax - Abneyed the 2 summits and the S top is highest.jimbloomer17/02/2015
Walked up from south starting at pub at Clovenfords. Reached middle cairn which my GPS registered as GR 454379. Cairn to north looked similar height but was surrounded by cows and fierce looking bulls, so I retreated back down the way I came up. This is a dubious bag. Comments would be appreciated. Thanks, Jim.russell6118/12/2012
