County Banffshire
Date opened June 1960
Date closed September 1991
Location In a square compound on a small hill north of houses near the junction of the B9014 and B9115
Description LOCKED All surface features remain intact with the green/grey paint flaking and one of the ventilation louvers damaged. A metal dome on the ventilation shaft indicates this was a master post. The hatch is locked but can be opened with a Scottish T bar key. Internally the post has been almost completely stripped, even the door hinges being taken. All that remains is the counter balance weight in the toilet recess, a tool rack and some wooden brackets. A small table and a large quantity of beer bottles remain on the floor.
An aircraft post stands nearby, outside the compound; it is approximately 7 X 5 and is built from concrete blocks. It originally consisted of an open topped observation area approximately 5' X 5' and a crew room with a sloping tin sheet as a roof. A tin roof has been added over the observation room as well. There is a wooden door at one end which is locked.
