Foot passenger to Shapinsay. Walked to electric bike hire shop just past and opposite the school. Managed to negotiate a 7.00 fee for 3.5 hours. Bagged both trigs, & churches plus looked for many benchmarks with limited success.

I approached while on a walk from the south via farm tracks and fields. However there is a track from the B9058 (at HY5052117902) which ends at a reservoir next to the trig. The track is driveable if the gate is open, which it was when I was there.
