NM3399 : Trig point and cairn at the summit of Orval

3 km from Harris, Highland, Great Britain

Trig point and cairn at the summit of Orval
Trig point and cairn at the summit of Orval
And not much else... As the highest point (571m) in the NW of Rum this must afford a superb view past Bloodstone Hill to Canna, a panorama to Skye and both the Rum and Skye Cuillin. However, the weather gods saw me coming and arranged a sufficiently moist SW airstream to nudge the cloud base down to about 500m.
