Eildon Hills are south of Melrose, in the Scottish Borders, overlooking the town. The north hilltop (of three peaks) is surrounded by over 5 km (3.1 mi) of ramparts, enclosing an area of about 16 ha (40 acres) in which at least 300 level platforms have been cut into the rock to provide bases for turf or timber-walled houses.
The mid hilltop is the highest. The south hilltop is the lowest. The Eildon Hills are surrounded by a large area of woodlands these are home to wildlife such as roe deer, badgers, stoats, and red foxes. In winter and early spring, the Eildon hills are often covered in snow however snow lasts longer on the higher slopes of the neighboring Southern Uplands.
