Decided on this hill today due to high wind conditions predicted at height. Very boggy but easy path to follow.
Good views from the top. High winds as well, which showed we made a good decision.

That looks nice, not as long a drive as I expected from Edinburgh. May well have to take a trip that way, maybe incorporating another couple too, like Black Hill as you did

Yeah it is a good pair of hills to do, when its a bit windy higher up. Nice views, and the Borders is always a great place to walk. Never saw a sole on either of the 2 routes, awesome.

Neat, I ve been thinking on this hill, you can see this from far and wide, it has such a distinctive shape, must work in reverse so will give it a try, thanks...
