Featured Row – Rinns of Shurdimires on Shetland

The northernmost stone row in Great Britain is a probable single one measuring 16.2m long, including two large-sized orthostats and one medium-sized stone situated on the western side of a rock outcrop. The row is orientated north to south. Three separate sea views are visible from the row and two distinctive promontories are visually linked by prominent rock outcrops. Further details are available here.
