Driving along Ronas Hill in the Northmavine in Shetland.

On my last day in the Northmavine in the northern part of Shetland, I thought about climbing Ronas Hill, the highest point in Shetland, a classed Marilyn. (A “Marilyn” is defined as a peak with at least 150 metres or more.)

But in the end, I got discouraged by the dark clouds and decides to drive along Ronas Hill searching for “The Hollanders Grave”.

The Hollanders Grave is a mass grave dating from the Anglo-Dutch war in 1674 somewhere opposite Ronas Hill. I didn´t really find the grave or better said the memorial for it, but it was a beautiful drive and walk.
