Drove the track to the gate (HU 4328 7571). Burn of Neshionwater bit of a pfaff to cross, otherwise all straightforward. 1" Bolt on a flat rock, exposed but in danger from encroaching grass, cleared some way to delay that process. Good panoramic views, Sullom Voe very prominent to west.

I parked at the junction of the A968 and the minor road to Toft and Brough. I hopped over the fence into the grassy field to the west and started heading for the left peak as it appeared from there. There were a few boggy and marshy bits to contend with as the route continued over the fence and out onto the moorland. The left hand 'peak' is in fact only a lower shelf of the hill and it's another 300m to the real peak! Here there is a raised area with stones and grass and in the middle a flat-ish stone with a bolt in it. Slightly noisy location overlooking the Sullom Voe Oil Terminal but also good views over to Yell and Northmavine in the bright sunshine and broken clouds. About 85 metres to the SSE is a 'monument' with a pipework joint mounted on the top. It is dedicated "To the People of Shetland from the Workforce at Sullom Voe" and dated 1981. There are also two chambered cairns nearby.
