First of 10 on a day planned by Bob and Sarah Kerr and superbly executed by Northerly Marine Services from Kirkwall on a beautiful sunny day. Used a taxi with very knowledgeable driver to take us to summit.Thearlaichdubh03/08/2019
From the ferry pier. Visited both candidate high points - incl. man made covered reservoir.summitsup06/05/2018
Revisit for east summit: hastily arranged, an hour between boats, a bit rushed, had to run a fair bit, pity I had the boots on! Showery evening and no time to contemplate relative height of the two summits.RHW02/06/2014
The cairn at HY5058217716 is at least as high as any land in the vicinity of the trig pillar. Harvey Groat, the local boatman, had earlier confirmed that the cairn is regarded locally as the island summit.richtea504031/05/2014
