Scott's View to Trimontium
From Scott's View, looking towards the three Eildon Hills and Trimontium

The view from this hill, overlooking the Eildon Hills and Trimontium is beautiful. One of the guidebooks had an engraving of the view from the 1800s, and it is virtually unchanged from the view today, even down to the plowed field.

Another angle, like the classic engraving of Scott's View over the Borders

It is said that when Sir Walter Scott died, his horses stopped here on their way to Dryburgh Abbey. They were so used to stopping here for Scott to look out over his beloved Borders that they stopped by themselves.
