Corridor Corner:

The Hoy hills (23) were very fine; particularly Ward Hill, which is the finest 1500ft of sandstone I've seen anywhere - despite its size, it's full of character and real mountain features. Cuilags was - er - steep. I have to agree that Knap of Trowieglen has a grand name, but that is offset by the surrounding moat full of alligators (the wife insisted they were only midges until she saw my legs afterwards). Further agreed that Blotchnie Fiold was worth the trip. Another wasteland of peat, but furnished with good paths thanks to RSPB. However, the only unusual birds we saw up here were bonxies, and they attacked us. So it goes.
