Allermuir Hill

A hill on the border of the City of Edinburgh and Midlothian, Allermuir Hill rises to 493m (1617 feet) a half-mile (1 km) west of Caerketton Hill, amongst the Pentland Hills. Its summit is marked by a geographical indicator, which records:


The National Trust for Scotland with the help of funds from Percy Unna entered into a Conservation Agreement in 1961 with Major Henry Trotter of Mortonhall in order to preserve the Northern slopes of Allermuir and Caerketton. This indicator was gifted to the Trust in 1964 by Arthur Russell O.B.E., W.S., who loved these Hills, and was the Trust's first Secretary and Treasurer when it was formed in 1931.
