Staerough Hill

Grid Reference NT829271

Height 331 metres

 

 

Park on the green area, on the left of the road, just as you enter the Halterburn Valley (NT839276). Turn right across the cattle grid and up the narrow road back towards Kirk Yetholm. After little more than 200 metres of tarmac, when a five bar gate is reached, leave the road to your left and make your way, via a thin path, towards the summit of Staerough Hill. If there happens to be livestock across your route, making you feel uneasy, keep with the tarmac road to the next five bar gate or failing that a tiny fence at the end of the stone wall immediately before the plantation. Whichever one you choose, it is just a matter of picking the best route up the steep sided hill. The trig point is at the far end of the hill. Tremendous views for a small hill.
