Over the day before on the ferry for £5. Camped behind waiting room at airport. Thick mist for three days so out came the compass at first step. Had to imagine the views.Crumblie217/07/2019
From road end at S to road end at N, visiting Da Noup, Da Sneug & Da Kame. Da Sneug in mist with some excellent views through weather windows. Super cliff top location at Da Kame - even saw a Brocken Spectre. Boat trip to island was arranged by Alan H. A meal in the school hall was part of the day out along with transport to & from road ends.ger19/06/2019
With Campbell et al. Boat from Hamnavoe.jimbloomer19/06/2019
My final attainable Marilyn. Accompanied by Glen Laws, Jim Bloomer, Chris Peart, Reg Willis, Alex Cameron and Dave Smith. Misty top but clear to the north. From Da Noop and en route to Da Kame. 1555.Campbell Singer19/06/2019
Congratulations Campbell and thanks for the whisky.Chris Peart19/06/2019
Finally succeeded getting out to Foula today nearly 8 years after my previous attempt. Had a great day for it too and superb company into the bargain as well.Alex C19/06/2019
Got place on a private charter with David McKintosh MacRobert from Dover, researching genealogy of his grandmother. Ken, who lives on the island, have! A lift to the start of the walk up Da Noupvegibagger29/05/2019
Flew in on the 10.15 flight from Tingwall which gives bags of time. North up the road, onto Da Nort Bank, and mobbed by ponies whilst eating early lunch. Up steeply but easily to Da Kame, and a fine promenade along to Da Sneug, Tounafield and Hamnafield. Down to Da Smaalie and up to Da Noup with wonderful cliff top views. Plenty of time to stroll down to the south light and Da Sooth Ness before the 16.45 flight.Gill24/08/2018
From Da Kame, onto Hamnafield. With Gill Stevens.jonglew24/08/2018
Flight from Tingwall delayed due to low cloud and pilot asked us all to phone in at 2 pm to confirm return flight time so only three hours available. Up ridge to Da Sneug fighting bonxies. Cloud starting to clear but judged not enough time to do Da Kame Tump so on to Da Noup and back for early return flight .NormanW26/06/2018
Overnight trip from Tingwall. Da Noup, Da Sneug, Da Kame and around north coast. Great cliffs and sea birds. This completes Section 22 Marilyns, 6 days after arriving at Lerwick on the overnight ferry. After receiving nil response from accommodation providers on Foula, I was going to spend the night in the airport shelter (has toilet and cold running water), but was offered accommodation by a passing local. Another, slightly more comfortable, option would be to sleep in the ‘Welcome Room’ attached to the nearby church.PGCE07/05/2018
Great day out from Tingwall. Early flight on a first misty day clearing to great sunshine. Da Noop, then Da Sneug and then Da Kame. Super curcuit of the isle taking in many features inc South Lighthouse, Da Sneck below Da Smaalie, chatting to peat cutters and visiting Ham and Da Toon. Lovely spot, a night over is called for!nordicstar07/06/2016
Misty on this one but views most of the way up.jenx07/06/2016
repeat ascent in nil visibilityDenise 20/04/2016
Superb mild, clear, still evening, with only puffins and bonxies (and Richard) for company. Camped overnight.Denise 19/04/2016
From pier, both marilyns, hot and sunny, superb views.iangalbraith26/08/2014
Shetland was being hit by the tailend of Hurricane Bertha and it was touch and go as to whether there'd be a flight today. Fortunately there was and I was rewarded by a wonderful few hours exploring Foula, taking in the 2 Marilyns. Da Noup was clear but unfortunately Da Sneug was shrouded in mist all day and it was so windy at the summit I was reduced to crawling in order to make forward progress and avoid being blown off. The Bonxies were constantly die-bombing me and I had to protect myself by waving my walking poles. On the flight back the pilot kindly took us on a wee detour to see the seabird colonies on the clifs. A truly mesmerizing and unforgettable experience.AndrewFinnimore13/08/2014
Claggy day - followed coast from north.fasgadh03/07/2013

Flight with Tricky Speirs to bag the TuMPs and grid squares on a lovely day for May.Dugswell228/05/2013
From Da West Bank (silly name). Traverse to top of Hamnafield, followed ridge over Tounafield to main summit. Easy walking with great views. Dropped down to Da Scrodhurdins and then followed cliffs all the way over Da Kame to Soberlie and road to airstripMartin R02/05/2012
Round of The Sneug and The Noup from Braidfit. That's after boat across with ignorant (laughing at Salmon boat waiting 2 hrs for their birth in ward while 'his fish rotting', incompetent (young folk under hoisted pallets while loading), obnoxious (I've seen empty helm for real guys) crew. None of them accepted a slice of my cake!Eddie23/08/2011
2nd visit in 2 days. Early morning warm-up ascent after a very chilly bivvy in the kirk, before catching the plane out. Dizzying views down the cliffs.RHW09/08/2008
To Baptist chapel and on faint path on ridge to Hamnafield and around and up to top at 11.30. to Noup.arranc15/08/2003
Air access weather dependent: I went across by boat, bagged the summit, spent a very chilly night in the kirk, then to warm up I rebagged the summit before the plane came to the rescue. Beware bonxies til Aug; the greater blackbacked gulls were a bit protective too.RHW08/08/2002
