To the north-east are the jagged rocks of the Ramna Stacks, with background silhouettes of the Gloup Holm in North Yell and the Muckle Flugga rocks north of Unst.
An entirely different landscape opens to the south-east over the scattered islands and bays of Yell Sound and Shetland's largest sea loch, Sullom Voe. Well beyond them are Out Skerries, Whalsay, Noss and Bressay, while in clear weather the noble outline of Fitful Head is visible, 43 miles (70km) to the south.
Foula's mysterious outline rears out of the ocean to the south-west, while just across St. Magnus Bay are Papa Stour and the Ve Skerries reef. Immediately below Ronas Hill is the fjord-like inlet of Ronas Voe, fringed by stupendous cliffs, offlying stacks and magnificent beaches such as Da Lang Ayre.
Leave plenty of time for your Ronas Hill walk - for even local folk tend to linger for a long, long while on the summit, just taking in this world-class panorama.
