Peniel Heugh and the Waterloo Monument, Harestanes

The massive Waterloo Monument on the grassy hill of Peniel Heugh is a landmark in many a Borders view. The straightforward ascent to visit it makes for an enjoyable round from Harestanes Visitor Centre.


Good paths, tracks and minor roads. The descent given from Peniel Heugh is a rougher, muddier path - but can be omitted.
