Blackcastle Hill

A summit at the eastern end of the Lammermuir Hills in East Lothian, Blackcastle Hill rises to approximately 316m (1036 feet) 1¼ miles (2 km) south of Innerwick. The hill has a broad triangular summit, with transmitter masts on the northeastern point of this triangle and an ancient earthwork on the western point. This earthwork began as a homestead in the Bronze Age and was developed into a hill fort in the Early Iron Age, although this was never completed. Blackcastle Hill is connected to Cocklaw Hill a half-mile (0.7 km) to the southeast.
