Collafirth Hill

The interpretive board at the top of Collafirth Hill looking towards Ronas Hill, the highest hill in Shetland.

The red granite boulders at the top of the hill and onto Ronas Hill.

Looking towards Ronas Hill with some snow from 2 weeks ago still visible near the top.

Its easy to drive to the top of Collafirth Hill - the road servicing the two communications masts is in good condition. The masts provides Television coverage for much of the north Mainland, as well as mobile phone communication. The site was also a small army base until the mid 1980's (which must have been fun!).
