A nice walk. Drove up the track from Blett and parked below Scroo, then contoured below Scroo to cross the Burn of Mail above the waterfall. Up the hillside on friendly vegetables with firm sheep tracks, then stroll along the broad ridge to the top. Good views of all other south Mainland Marilyns and of Foula. My last Shetland Marilyn.Gill27/08/2018
Parked near the quarry (HU 4144 2959). Scroo and Holm Field first. Ground a bit roung and some hags, but dry and fairly easy going.jonglew27/08/2018
From end of public road above Blett. Turned off track too early, and had to cross lots of fences. Better to carry on up track to peat diggings at Scroo col.PeteN20/08/2018

From high point on public road at Brett. Up track before a 140m contour round Scroo hill to burn and up direct to Royl top. Continuation to the HuMP and TMP we left to Doug and Tricky, peat hags looked horrendous so just one for chumps! ;-) Back same way and onto another Mariyn.nordicstar27/05/2013
Left car at 200m contour at 408264 (car would have been better left lower down), then followed marked Shetland access route along straight line to about 100m south of summit. About 80m of reascent.Topographer5724/05/2013
