With Jen and Bryher up the peat cutters track. Dry as a bone, Little Berry as well of course.nordicstar27/07/2018
A nice stroll with lots of bonxies for company.jenx27/07/2018
Track followed by easy gradual ascent on surprisingly dry ground. Lost a ski glove somewhere on way up.Campbell Singer03/04/2015
Under some pressure to get back in time for the ferry. Approached from the west after some excellent coastal walking.Alex C06/06/2014
Track from Saltness. With Alan and George to Berry then alone to Skird and Binga Fea. Mobbed by Skuas between Berry and loch below Binga. Met Rob Woodall near the road.chrisbien06/06/2014
Track then moorland to bag this trig in the mist with Jim Bloomer and Tricky Speirs.Dugswell230/05/2014
Followed the peat-cutters track from Saltness into Glen of the Berry which I bet is like a giant sponge in wet weather. Cairn dominates skyline, the trig is over to right. Great views of whole northern coastline of Scotland. Went for look at the Needle and other delights. Back via dunes & Melsetter farm.Martin R17/05/2012
