Geo-Trips :: Shetland (1) - A walk to Ronas Hill
A walk from Collafirth Hill, Fri, 3 Jun 2016 by David Purchase
|This trip is part of a series.||next leg|
Ronas Hill is the highest point in the Shetland Islands. It was important for me, as it was my final County Top in the British Isles (including Ireland). It was a glorious day (unlike two days earlier on Ward Hill, Hoy, in the Orkneys) although the wind was strong. The date of this walk was exactly 27 years since I climbed my final Munro.
This was the start of a 15-day visit to the Shetland Islands in June 2016, and the Geo-trips are 'linked'. As well as Ronas Hill, my main objectives were to see Muckle Flugga - see Shetland (2) - and to get Geographs in Myriads HU, HP, HT (Foula) and HZ (Fair Isle). I very nearly failed on HT - see Shetland (13).
