|083 Standing Stones, Brundeanlaws,
These two standing stones are located in a young forestry
plantation about 150 metres SSW of the summit of Moor Head, to
the north of Brundeanlaws farm. The largest of the two stones
reaches around 1.40 metres high and is packed with small stones
around the base. The second stone, some 3.00 metres to the
south, reaches only 0.70 metres high and appears to have
been broken at some time.
Following the A68 south from Jedburgh, continue past Camptown.
After the entrance for Edgerston, take the next left minor road
leading to Pennymuir and later Hownam. Brundeanlaws farm entrance
is about 2 miles along the road opposite a large forestry plantation.
Follow the track on foot and turn right along a firebreak where
the road brows the hill, near some pylons. The stones are quite
There is space for parking at the entrance to the farm/forestry
plantation. Take care not to block access.
On the day of my visit my walk took me closer to the form,
intending to turn right along the tarmac road, before heading up
to the stones. To my dismay, I noticed a pile of branches and
what appeared from the distance, to be some large boulders. I
thought these might be the standing stones I was looking for.
However, I continued round and eventually came across the
"true" stones, still standing where they have stood
for many a year.
