The Eildon Hills are three prominent peaks just south of the Scottish Borders town of Melrose. The highest, known as Eildon Mid Hill, reaches an elevation of 422 metres (1,385 ft). That’s not particularly tall – there are over 8,000 higher peaks in the British Isles – but its conical shape provides excellent views from the top. Eildon Hill North is almost as high, at 404 m, while Eildon Wester Hill is just 371 m at its highest point.
You can climb all three peaks as part of a 9.5 km circular walk starting at the Nutwood car park in Melrose. You can find an online route map and directions on the walkhighlands website.
