Evening summit bag from the west. Followed path from car park to waterfall then over style and followed fence line up hill before then striking up to summit area. Went to trig first then all potential high points in area. Saw a fallen cairn by peat hag in middle of bog so rebuilt it ;-) Solo.assynt_bob16/06/2019
Parked at Upper Kergord (10:20) and crossed rough fields to moorland and up grassy slopes and some hags to summit. Weather dry. Finish 11:45. Last day in Shetland.dbb12/06/2019

Bypassed contouring below the other two hills to do them on the return leg. Trig pillar. Looked like impending good sunset to NW across Muckle Row.vegibagger28/05/2019
A sneaky little Marilyn after Noss and Bressay. From Upper Kergord, easily up sheep pastures then bog vegetables and peat hags to the top. A good viewpoint for most of Shetland including Foula.Gill19/08/2018
Parked at Upper Kergord farm on grass verge. Walked up to North House on farm track then took a direct line across rough pasture and fairly dry peat hags to the top.jonglew19/08/2018

Drove up track to Upper Kergord then took a direct line to summit, haggy higher up.AndrewFinnimore10/08/2014
After the ascent of Scrae Field. With a friend. From the minor road going to Upper Kergord. At the end of the road at Upper Kergord we didnít find a suitable parking place so we turned round and parked a little way down the road near a cattle grid. Walked roughly NE. There were odd bits of path probably made by sheep. It was foggy so we could not see much. We skirted round the side of a minor top east of the summit of Scalla Field to reach the summit of Scalla Field. There is a trig point, but the highest point is probably nearby but not quite where the trig point is. We also visited three cairns nearby which are possible summit points but my conclusion is that none of them is the highest point. We returned the same way initially but then took a somewhat different line going more easterly to descend into the Valley of Kergord somewhat north of Upper Kergord. We continued to Upper Kergord and down the road.pwbellarby26/08/2013
Mist cleared near top so great views.bolton27/07/2013

Early start and a bit of rain for this moorland hill with Tricky Speirs.Dugswell202/06/2013
Arrived at Kergord road end w Jenx as Doug and Tricky just had departed, sun coming out so worth another cuppa before leaving Voxter centre! Roadside parking. Direct line to top right field boundary. Cross hags skirting left of minor top. Nice summit trig and views, to West final Shetland Marilyn Sandbess Hill bathed in sun, next!nordicstar02/06/2013
From SE, bagged while Adrian Rayner was doing the Hoo/Mid Kame pair. Dull ascent then seaward view a nice surprise. Bagged from W last time so a sort of 15 year traverse. RHW27/05/2013
4th/4 for the day, left car Upper Kergord at 1700 in cool breeze, near enough direct route to summit, arrived at summit in warm sunshine.Topographer5725/05/2013

Small place to park about 100m before GOML sign at end of public road - although to be fair the farmer did friendly wave when I left. Not much of a path and fences have to be gotten over. Fun avoiding the peat bogs. Good views.Martin R01/05/2012
Bus pass from Lerwick to run up from the main road on a rainy Saturday afternoon.Eddie20/08/2011
Park at the end of the Upper Kergord road. Initially very wet under foot.Danny Mc Neill07/02/2010
