Parking at the council tip entrance, up the west side of the compound - direct route to top, steep and a little scrambly in one place. Lovely location, just off the hill summit. Pillar retains an original centre cap, raised lettering; front and rear sight holes open. Extensive panorama, views north to Westray good.

Parked near the quarry/civic amenity to the north then straight up to the trig with Chris Bienkowski, Jim Bloomer and Tricky Speirs.

Walked up from B9064 immediately west of small landfill site. Fairly rough going with rocky terraces. Good view on summit of surrounding islands. Descended east to B9064 but the odd boggy spot on way down.

vgc, metal cap, wide raised well-formed letters. Painted white. At foot of summit tumulus. A Yeaman summit, hence the earlier visit. From NNE, inauspicious start beside a landfill site but nice steep craggy climb higher up. Spotting with rain; in cloud.
