Brieryshaw Hill

A hill of E Dumfries and Galloway, Brieryshaw Hill reaches 230m (754 feet) on the southeastern flank of Stake Hill, a half-mile (1 km) north of Ewes and 4½ miles (7 km) north of Langholm. On its summit is a remarkable Iron-Age hill-fort dating from the first millennium BC. This is defended by two broad ramparts, built of earth and stone, separated by a 9-m (29-feet) wide ditch.
