Eildon Hill Scottish Borders


Eildon Hill, Scottish Borders.

Eildon Hill lies to the south of Melrose in the Scottish Borders.
The name is usually pluralised into the Eildon Hills because of a triple peak.
The tallest of the peaks is 1.385 feet (422m) high.
A bronze age hill fort here could have held a population of up to 6000, the biggest in Scotland from this period. It is thought that the hill was considered a holy place to the ancient people & is referred to in folklore as a "hollow hill" and is mentioned in the legend of Thomas the Rhymer.
