Knitchen Hill, Blotchnie Fiold and Trumland Reserve, Rousay

Climb to the highest point on Rousay, an excellent viewpoint, passing an impressive chambered cairn on the way. The circuit passes through the Trumland RSPB Reserve and is a good place to spot raptors and short eared owls.


Waymarked moorland path, very boggy in places, navigation skills needed in poor weather, minor road.
