Eday Heritage WalkPaulineD26/09/2017
After Red Head. With Evan W. Along Eday Heritage path from Noup Hill to top, ignoring chambered cairn, then back north to wall and directly east down to Carrick House and back to car to head for Greenybrae Hill. Warm but hazy sunshine, with stiff breeze.mainnirnamfiadh16/08/2016
Second TuMP of the day with Jim Bloomer, Richard and Tricky Speirs on a sunny morning on Eday. Also visited a nearby chambered cairn. The Neolithic chambered cairn on Vinquoy Hill commands views across much of the Orkney archipelago. It measures approximately 17m in diameter and 2.5m in height and has an entrance passage leading to a central chamber with four small side-cells.Dugswell228/05/2014
