Scope and Content Chambered cairn at Ronas Hill, North Mainland, Shetland This chambered cairn is at Ronas Hill. It is reasonably well preserved which in part is due to its remote setting on the highest part of the islands. It was probably originally a heel-shaped cairn though nothing is known about the original contents. This is a plan of the cairn. The entrance passage, 2.4 m long, leads into a rectangular chamber.
