Looking to Ward Hill, Fair Isle
Looking to Ward Hill, Fair Isle
From near the transmission station. The two diagonal lines are clearly the routes of the cables used to haul goods up to the former radar station on the summit. What a shame that they weren't used to bring down some of the debris left on the summit after closure!

Although one can argue about "What is a hill?", I think there are five hills of any significance on Fair Isle. At 217m, Ward Hill is clearly the highest.
