Cairn on Virda Field
Looking north-east across the voe at Baltasound to the hill of the Keen of Hamar and then beyond that to the Hill of Clibberswick. The purpose of the cairn is unclear, as it is not the highest point which visually and by GPS is just to the west of the small lochan, where the 100m spot point is on the 1:25,000 map.
