vgc, no cap or plug. From N, West Bold, forest road to S.U.W. Met a young chap on a bike who was travelling round Scotland ticking MTB routes - some folk have strange hobbies! I went on to visit the four (unexciting) 500m tops to E and NE

Pleasant walk up Southern Upland Way from Traquair. Lots of Mountain Biking activity on the way up including a route that passes over the summit itself.

Easy parking beside Traquair Village Hall then up easy paths to summit on cool dry cloudy morning.

Located at the top of the Innerleithen Cross Country MBK trail. Its a fair slog up from the car park but worth it for the intense and technical descent. Fantastic colours on the surrounding hills today and the sun-set later was a corker.

Started from the public phone box in Traquair at NT 331 348, where a road leads up to join the Southern Upland Way. Follow the SUW for a couple for miles, as it climbs to the top of Minch Moor. At the top, follow the signpost for MINCH MOOR STONE AND VIEWPOINT, which leads to the pillar. Views in all directions.

Pillar in good condition. The spider is now minus its OS plug, the centre being open to the elements. Flush bracket faces N.N.W. Minch Moor is approximately 2½ miles south east on Innerleithen. Peebleshire. This top is open moorland with access to all. It is presently rumoured (year 2003) that there is an application to construct a wind farm on this hill. Easiest accessed from Traquair (NT330346), it is a fair climb but a rewarding summit with a cairn and a trig pillar. Revisited and photographed 5/04/2003, GRP.

The pillar was completed 19th July 1958 costing £35.9s.1d. In 1959 this marker was computed as secondary station NT33/5 in the Peebles block. Flush bracket S9827 was levelled for height also in 1959. This marker was last maintained by the OS in June 1977. The spider still had raised letter centre plug in 1990.
