Ronas Hill Shetland Visitor Information Guide

Written on . Posted in Places of Interest in the Scottish Highlands

Ronas hill in the northern part of the mainland, is the highest point in Shetland. Rising to some 1486 ft from sea level, the red granite mass is most impressive: its cliffs at Stonga Banks are 600 ft high. This is classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest mainly because of its Arctic~alpine flora, with many striking natural features.

The Lang Ayre is a shingle beach almost l mile long under high cliffs; in Lang Clodie Wick there is a waterfall 240 ft high, and the lochs in the area are connected by burns with spectacular waterfalls and rapids. The determination of the visitor who penetrates this rugged corner of Shetland will be amply rewarded by its splendour and beauty.
