Smailholm Tower and Trimontium

Smailholm and Trimontium

Driving over to Peebles, we stopped the car so I could take a quick picture of these two landmarks of the Borders. I prefer Trimontium as a name to The Eildons, though both have their beauty; but it stirs me to think of the Romans naming these hills. Up close these volcanic outcrops loom over the landscape, but from way off they anchor the horizon.  I can see them clearly all the way from Coldstream.
