taken 5 years ago, 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, taken 5 years ago
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.
