Along cliff top path along the W coast, great views all the way. Summit un-marked Woodrush grass and a little heather.RichardM30/07/2018
Along cliffs from Rackwick. Great summit but surprisingly tough and spongy vegetationColin Crawford28/06/2016
My final Hoy P30 (well except for the one...) and last-but-4 Orkney Tump. Up Helli-a ... early a.m. From E, parked S of Murra, eventually found a path which was useful on the way back... Wonderful scenic route with steep finish although summit itself partly in mist with no distant views. Then first ferry back to Mainland then the Scottish Mainland. So a fine way to end a successful and memorable Orkney week.RHW07/06/2014
