TP3878 - Hill Of Fitch

Parked car at old road between Brig O Fitch and Scalloway. Walked up John Boyne's Burn to get a few pics of the waterfalls then went straight to pillar. Showery day so visibility was quit poor at times. Saw 2 Mountain Hares in their winter coats, nearly stood on one!

My last day in Shetland. Dry morning but rain forecast for the afternoon so I left my B&B at Tingwall and headed towards Lerwick. I parked up beside the A970 just east of the Bridge of Fitch opposite a gate/sheep pen giving access to the hillside. A very steep first half of the half-mile walk - the gradient was almost 1 in 2 in places. Once over that the terrain becomes tumpy with eroded peat banks and boggy bits. The pillar sits beside the intersection of three fence lines. Bressay and Noss visible to the east but the bulk of Lerwick is hidden by South & North Staney Hill. Burradale Wind Farm (the most productive in Europe) is an interesting sight to the NW. Return via same route - hard on the knees! After lunch at the Peerie Shop Cafe in Lerwick I spent the afternoon watching seals behind Tesco, looking at the very impressive Clickimin Broch and - in Scalloway - the castle and the memorial to the WWII 'Shetland Bus'. Then after 29 days in Shetland it was back to the ferry terminal safe in the knowledge that, although I've 'ticked off' 120, there are 23 more trigpoints to bring me back here some time soon... Pillar details and photos to follow...

A bright day with occasional showers. Visibility good with at least 25 mile views in all directions. Island of Foula about 28 miles distant was misty but visible. Much erosion in the surrounding ground, probably due to a combination of peat cutting and weather. A lot of white hares seen on the route.

Started out from Sandy Loch and followed the track round the end of the loch and up as far as it went, well I think so as the snow was a bit deep! Perfect day calm and sunny, ideal for a trip up this hill.

(128) Could have been a stunning view from up here, if it wasn't so foggy. Couldn't find an easy way up, so just did a straight line from the Calor Gas works. All metalwork intact

When I downloaded the trig points to my GPS this came down as TP3055. My first trig point logged in the Shetlands. Started to look for TPs due to the lack off Geocaches here. Planted a Geocache near to increase the numbers!
