According to the CQ Marathon webpage, those calls are not valid for Shetland Islands.

I also found one other call that I created an override for about a week ago GM4CAQ. It just seemed odd that these were showing up as unworked marathon countries

+ If those stations are on the Shetland Islands and you haven't worked Shetland Islands this year, then its correct for them to be highlighted as needed for the CQ DX Marathon.
Agreed, but....

GM4CAQ, per qrz.com bio, left GM/s in 1997.

Seems that a cleanup of the DXCC database may be in order........
