W Jenx after Blotchnie Fiold. Parked by viewpoint and around civic amenity (local dump). Steep up NE end and direct to top/trig. Good views to mainland and Westray.nordicstar06/06/2013
From Goukheads, rough going to start with, gets easier. Bonxie attacks add to the fun. Good view of Westray. Summit has lump next to trig that is higher - natural? Dropped to road and big block of carved stone/modern art and marched back to ferry on traffic free road.Martin R18/05/2012
