Walked along the road then up the track. I couldn't see anything today apart from the trigpoint pillar and the building.Alancache06/08/2019
Parking not possible at the track entrance so parked up next to a Swannay Farm sign in a lay-by at the north end of the loch.summitter25/07/2019
Straight forward walk up the track all the way to the trig. Some interesting WWII leftovers at top too. Lots of sheep, so we kept Charlie on the lead.thejackrustles23/09/2016
From the loch side lay-by up the track to the abandoned station. What a miserable place to be posted to.Play2End20/08/2014

Walked up track to bag the trig and check out the summit area with Jim Bloomer and Tricky Speirs.Dugswell231/05/2014
From HY 309 293summitsup30/05/2012
Obvious start at HY309293, obvious track, summit not quite so obvious. There is a lumpy mound near the trig which is higher, but is it natural? Scruffy top with good view of Rousay/Westray.Martin R18/05/2012
Trig revisit. Fine evening view over Loch of Swannay and Eynhallow SoundRHW28/05/2010
