Burgh Hill
Hawick, Borders
Stone Circle Canmore
This circle has, according to Burl, been described as "the finest stone circle in the county". Hmmm...I guess I didn't see it at its best. Or the other circles in the county are not very hot.

The circle shares the hilltop with an ancient fort.

Most of the thirteen stones which still stand (out of a total of twenty-five) are less than a foot tall. One stone stands around 2 and a half feet tall, and there is a fallen stone that would have been around five feet tall.
