  • Had an epic walk, we got so ridiculously lost due to the very poor and misleading signposts. We were shattered by the time we found it, but had awesome views while sitting and enjoying our picnic in t...  more »
  • This monument is over two hundred years old and is very impressive. There is a great walk to great there and the views of the local countryside are amazing. Well worth visiting just for the views.  more »
  • On a visit to the Borders, some friends took me on a lovely walk from the Harestanes Craft & Visitor Centre (which has ample parking) to the Waterloo Monument (completed almost 200 years ago in 1824) ...  more »

  • Looks like a good walk from Harestaines visitor centre but we knew our old dog wouldn’t manage so we drove much nearer. No proper car park but enough space on the road to park safely. Nice 10-15 minute walk through woods but then a stile unsuitable for dogs so we needed to take turnabout waiting behind the stile. Views worth the short climb.
  • Good walk with dogs from nearby Ancrum or Jedburgh. There is nearly always livestock so be careful. The views of the surrounding borders are impressive.
  • Great view from the top, make sure you pick up the keys to go inside. Steep climb up the stairs to the top
  • Amazing views and a good walk there. A modest cost of 5 pounds to use the keys from the Lothian Estate Office
  • Great walk, stunning scenery but an ugly monument!
