Would recommend to everyone. The views were still amazing even though the weather was miserable. Used to have red kites here but they were nearly extinct a long time ago but sadly they haven’t came back yet.

We arrived here by taking a Rabbies Tour. Would not have come here if it were not for the tour and we are happy we got to make the visit. The views and the historical significance is amazing.

A great place to calm down!

We were here on a beautiful spring day in April, and it was lovely! You can walk around the lovely neighborhood, or just sit down and totally relax and enjoy the marvelous view over the green meadows, Eildon Hills and the Tweed river valley. Perfect for a pic-nick!

Not much to say about this location but it is absolutely stunning. Loved the story board talking about Scott loving the location with 1 mile of people at his funeral....and the horses carrying his coffin, by habit stopped by Walter Scott’s favourite view.

What a View
Jan 2020 • Friends
It is easy to see why the Scottish bard enjoyed this view so much, it doesn’t matter what season you visit the Eileen Hills in the distance look superb. A great photo point and worth stopping to admire. On a nice sunny evening benches are available to sit and watch the sun going down in the peace of the beautiful borders. Parking is tight at popular times but you can usually get a space.

The views were good on the drive up to the layby. The views even on a cold December day were fantastic. Peaceful and relaxing, a good place to reflect and chill.

There is a lay by and a viewpoint. The view is spectacular, looking over the river to the Eildon hills. Worth stopping to see.

Beautiful view-- be sure to bring a bit of Sir Walter's writing to read
Sep 2019
This was a favorite view of Sir Walter Scott and as others have stated his funeral procession stopped on it's way for one last glimpse of this beautiful countryside.

Just a few moments to revel in the Scottish countryside.
