This is situated to the west of the A968 as it leaves Baltasound towards Haroldswick. It is placed on rising ground and can be seen plainly from the road. I have not been able to find out anything about Jessie Saxby but her cairn is a fine gesture.

A quick 'Google' reveals that Jessie Saxby was a prominent folklorist and author.
