Burgh Hill Fort
Hawick, Borders
Iron Age Fort Canmore

This fort, probably Iron Age, stands atop Burgh Hill near Teviothead. The area is rich with earthworks from ancient settlements.

On the same hill, just a short distance away, is Burgh Hill stone circle.

Ramparts protected a significant settlement, except on the northwest side where the hill falls away sharply.
