The South ridge of Mount Maw
|Summit:|| 1,755 feet NT141554 |
The hill stands in the bifurcation of two routes: an ancient Roman road leaves the valley of the Lyne Water and passes to the east of Mount Maw up to Carlops a mile to the east, while the Cross Borders Drove Road, on old drovers' tracks, follows up the upper course of the Lyne to the west, through Baddinsgill.
A subsidiary top, Faw Mount (1,365 feet), stands closer by the farm at Baddinsgill and the river to the south. On the slopes to the north is found a petrifying spring.
