Location

Nearest town: Peebles

Terrain description

Just to the south of Peebles, this area is mostly high open hillside, steep-sided, rough and grassy, with plantation forest on the SE side. Intricate contour and rock detail in places adds to the challenge. There’s an ancient hillfort on top of the hill, known for its cheval de frise (area of pointed stones to hinder attackers), and there are panoramic views.
Used for Regional events (e.g. South of Scotland Orienteering League).
