Mitchell Hill

A modest summit of the W Scottish Borders, Mitchell Hill rises to 322m (1056 feet) a half-mile (1 km) east northeast of White Hill and 3 miles (5 km) southeast of Biggar. A fine Iron-Age hill-fort, known as the Mitchelhill Rings, lies beyond the summit on a spur of White Hill. This circular structure was defended by three concentric stone-built ramparts surrounding a small settlement comprising circular stone-walled houses, with an entrance to the southeast. It is scheduled as an ancient monument.
