MC34063 blues

Can anyone help me figure out why this circuit with an MC34063 is not working correctly? I followed the datasheet and also used the design tool to try and boost 12 volts up to 20.

Without a load the voltage slowly creeps up to about 18 and then drops with even a few milliamps applied. My first inductor was a 100uH toroid which I thought was too low so I changed it for a 250uH ferrite core choke. Then I lowered the timing cap from 220pF to 100pF to increase the switching frequency, that also had little effect.

Any ideas as to whats wrong?

Here is the pcb layout in case thats an issue. Red is the top layer and blue is the bottom.

The inductor needs to connect before the 180R resistor.

Doh!

Many thanks, thats been bothering me for a while. :smash:
