Ward hill is (i believe) the highest hill on Hoy, and certainly has some very steep ascents.
Managable when you're a young(ish) HillBagger like me, but it wasn't a walk in the park:)
Great veiws from the top, you can see all the Orkneys, and on a really clear day, Fair Isle and a bit of the Mainland aswell:)
Overall, a good walk :)
