Large car park at The Fairy (HY 5899 0790). Walked to The Gloup and followed coastline to Mull Head. Stunning around Brough of Deerness, some good scrambling. Lang Geo also worth a look. A very nice part of Orkney. Pillar retains an original centre cap, raised lettering; RHS sight hole open, and contains a geocache.

Circular walk from The Gloup. Chatted to archaeologists excavating a Viking house on Brough of Deerness then on to the trig.

Parked at parking by The Gloop - an unusual feature! Coastal path round. Then on to the memorial. The path shown on the map from Northfield through to Breckan does not go as shown and ended up spitting me out at Stove; not sure what happened but take care!

vgc, meatl cap, wide raised well-formed letters. Great location, pity about the name. Followed the coast path, took the shortcut path back (a mistake - a bit too Bonxie for comfort). Also found out where Cumbrians go for their holidays. Superb coastal scenery: Brough of Deerness is also a fine feature, an easy scramble (path with chain) hosting chapel ruins.

Impressive. Most impressive. A young boy saw me on top of this, and decided that my feat needed to be emulated. Thus, a new triangulation station hunter was born!

Spectacular cliffs - not for vertigo sufferers. Fabulous views. The Gloup is not for those with deep seated freudian anxieties.
