These stacks, on the right-hand side of the photograph) off the Northmavine coast in Shetland have a colourful name of ‘The Drongs’ or ‘Da Drongs’ in the Shetland dialect.
Now well isolated from the land, they once would have been part of the cliff face until the sea eroded the softer or more brittle rock around these hard volcanic stumps, leaving them standing sentinel over the coastline.
This view was taken from just by the Braewick cafe and caravan/camping site – well worth a visit if you are in those parts!
Thanks for looking,
