The Drongs
The Drongs
The Drongs are a small clump of remarkably shaped sea stacks off the western coast of the Ness of Hillswick. The rocks straddle the gridline between HU2575 and HU2675 with the majority of them in the more westerly square.
Judging from the map, I think that the land in the distance is Muckle Roe.
