A quick walk round the south end of the island between ferries.jenx25/07/2018
Morning ferry to Eday from Kirkwall. Called at other isles, 1.5 hr trip, nice walk on South of Isle plus couple of other tops, back on later ferry to Kirkwall more directly.nordicstar25/07/2018
Nice easy bag after helping Sarah and Seumas bad the lighthouse at the north of the island.assynt_bob15/04/2017
Completion Tump on Eday. After Fersness Hill. Lift from Evan W. for first part of road west from Roadside, then solo. Left where track turns right, and up to ridge and then summit by faint tracks. Back the same way, to be collected and driven to ferry for Sanday. Warm but hazy sunshine, with stiff breeze.mainnirnamfiadh16/08/2016
Very early start to get 07.00 ferry. Seemed to visit most Ornkey islands before arriving on Eday for rather drab hill, on an uninspiring island on a dull, damp day. Still, mustn't grumble.Barbara Singer04/04/2015
Parked near the pub then walked up track and moorland to summit with Jim Bloomer, Richard Tibbetts and Tricky Speirs on a sunny afternoon before a trip to the beach.Dugswell228/05/2014
From ferry on a circular wander taking in War Ness.summitsup27/05/2012
From ferry, via Greentoft farm and signposted to top. Returned by dropping down to Rushacloust and then using the Warness path. Stuck on island all day so plenty of time to crawl into chambered cairns and spot Redthroated Divers.Martin R20/05/2012
Revisit. Trig with large square cairn nearby. From NNE, parked at pub. Took advantage of the Sunday Excursions timetable which enabled me to visit Eday then finish the day on Stronsay for overnight.RHW30/05/2010
Date is first visit. Notes from later...see log on RHW31/07/2002
