Survey marker on Virda Field
Survey marker on Virda Field
This metal spike labelled 'survey marker' is not even at the highest point of the hill - it is at 95m a.s.l. according to my GPS while there is a cairn at 98m and the highest point, unmarked but shown as a spot height on the 1:25,000 map, is at 100m. The view beyond shows the entire extent of the island of Balta, which shelters the harbour at Baltasound. For a close-up of the marker see HP6206 : Survey marker on Virda Field.
