Drove farm track until due N of the pillar, over a field gate and across a pasture. Pillar sits in a small muddy moat. No centre cap or plug; RHS sight hole open. Extensive early evening panorama - Hoy good.

Road track access is easy. A new house is currently being built on the road junction track access to this trig. A metal boiler is located at the two corner access to this trig point. An electric fence to look out for, hence my distant trig bag.

Met the farmer at the bottom of the track and he said no bother to driving up the good concrete track. Parked at the mast, ducked under the electric fence, and there was the trig on the crest of the hill. No centre cap and a slight moat. With CJ.

Massive new house being built at the bottom of the track, had to ask if it was ok to come past as there was at least 12 workmen and various items on machinery in action. The guy digging up the road said "aye on you go", not sure if he really knew where or what I wanted to go and see but I was soon up and through the open gate under one wee electric fence wire and at the trigpoint.

Good condition pillar. Unfortunately, no views due to being in a cloud. Quick bag across two electric fences. FB faces northeast-ish with northwest-ish sighthole open only. No cap or plug present.

Ample time while the group were at Skara Brae. Atmospheric day with sunshine, gales and downpours....perfect. Orkney rocks ;)

One of the sides of the trig has taken a bit of a knock. Met up with Jim Fothergill whilst taking a break on the cairn who was doing a cycle round of all the hills and trigs in the area.

First Orkney trigpoint. Bit of a shock to the system as we left a record heatwave in England, but needed full waterproofs, fleeces and hats here. Jayne was smug at having a down jacket, we all regretted not having gloves! Trigpoint in good condition, but is missing its plug.

Short, but sweet stroll up to this one - until we saw the cows eyeing us up! Nice views of Hoy.

vgc, no cap or plug, in cattle-induced puddle in middle of pasture. Rain stopped play. Peripatetics pic suggests a nice Hoy view S, but not this evening.

A rather unremarkable beast, particularly by the high standard of others in the Orkney Islands.

A simple, short stroll up a simple, small hill. Painted white.
