Parked end of public road, by Lower House. Track leads SSE for ~160m, whence took a direct line to the hill top and trig. All three arms are exposed with minimal grass encroaching; large ~3" conical bolt at centre. Fine and extensive views, if a little misty.

I took advantage of what I thought would be a break in the showers to make the dash up from Lower Houses. My first Curry Stool (strange name but apparently after a Cpl Curry of the Royal Engineers) with good views out to the mainland over Yell Sound and indeed Ronas Hill with a thick black cloud over it! I did not stay long as I could see the next dose of rain just across the water. The leading edge of it caught me but thankfully it was only light to begin with; after I got back to the car the hail started lashing the windows!

No flush bracket - this is one of Shetland's two curry stools. Good for the condition although it wasn't a pillar. Found survey marker within a few hundred yards but don't know if there's any connection.
