Park at or near Rubers Law Wild Woods Camping. I rang the owner and ask if I could park and he was confused and wouldn’t say yes or no. It’s quite simple “Can I park please?” to which you reply yes or no or ask for some payment. Unable to get a yes/no I offered to pay him in cash for an afternoon’s parking and he finally said I could park for free but laid down all kinds of oddball rules. When I turned up he was nowhere about and so I told a member of staff " the boss said it’s OK " and booted up and left. However, there does appear to be more car parking that is not on the campsite grounds just by their entrance where lots of people had parked and were going for a walk. NT585169
I followed the signs to Spital Tower from the camp site and then along the Borders Abbeys Way to a fence at NT587174 then crossed into a field and went in a “sort-of” direct line to the summit.
It’s trivial till the final ascent.
Taken from near NT580158 looking approx South to the summit.
Summit Trig. It has been sabotaged by some dumb people with a celebrational plaques including covering up the hole / mounting lugs on top. Still they did paint it white.
There was some kind of Pagan sacrifice taking place when I was there
There are plenty of people saying they went from near West Lees farm. But there may be plenty of bracken and gorse. So with deer and bracken, do a good check for ticks when you get back. Signs advising you to keep out/no unauthorised access can be treated with the contempt they deserve, this is Scotland! Likewise, the deer gates only appear to be padlocked and are unlocked.
