Drove up mast access road, bit rocky in places. Pillar retains an original centre cap, raised lettering; rear sight hole open. Extensive panorama.

Had an hour of spare time while the group were at the Orkneyinga Saga centre. Flat grey skies this morning but warm enough. Would be a magnificent view on a good day.

Only ESE sight open with raised lettered cap - good condition with smashing views over Scapa Flo and the glory of Hoy to the South - 3rd accidentally triggy day on the trot after not booking the Hoy ferry and having a spare hour! Whoops-a-daisy! Terrifically clear morning! :D
