From E, rocky knoll, quick single before our celebratory meal at Busta, nearing end of excellent 2 weeks on ShetlandRHW19/06/2019
Parked in Southpund farm yard.. Straight up rough pasture. Was confronted by three Belted Galloways in summit field. Inquisitive and playful, bordering on the aggressive. Not even black belts. Baby Galloway was the worst.Campbell Singer09/06/2019

I saw this hill, an obvious Tump, from Mid Ward, and so had a quick visit as my final walk on Muckle Roe. I could park by pulling off the road at HU341654.David Purchase14/06/2016
