Eshaness and Ronas Hill
Eshaness and Ronas Hill Review
About 15 miles north of Brae are the rugged, forbidding cliffs around Eshaness; drive north and then turn left onto B9078. On the way, look for the striking sandstone stacks or pillars (known as the Drongs) in the bay that resemble a Viking galley under sail. Then return to join the A970 at Hillswick and follow an ancillary road from the head of Ura Firth. This road provides vistas of rounded, bare Ronas Hill, the highest hill in Shetland.
Tangwick Haa Museum. After viewing the cliffs at Eshaness, call in at Tangwick Haa Museum, the 17th-century home of the Cheynes, now packed full with photographs, household items, and knitting, farming, and fishing equipment from the 18th to early 20th centuries. Upstairs is a room of curiosities, including whales eardrums. Off B9078, Tangwick, ZE2 9RS. 01806/503389. www.tangwickhaa.org.uk. Free. Apr.–Sept., daily 11–5.
