Location In a square compound in the north west corner of a larger compound containing two large aerial masts, part of an outstation for Stonehaven Radio (BT maritime station). 250 yards along track from an un-named minor road.
Description LOCKED All surface features remain intact with some flaking of the beige paint. A metal dome on the ventilation shaft indicates this was a master post. The hatch is locked but there are no padlocks so it can be opened with a Scottish 'T' bar key. Internally the post is in good condition with much remaining including the folding table, shelf, cupboard, floor standing rack of Dexion shelves, fire blanket/box, several laminated cluster maps and other laminated papers, 2 original folding canvas chairs, 3 Jerry
cans, pots/pans, kettle, pick axe, spade, crow bar, dome handle, two buckets, waste bin, rope, BPI mount, coax cable and a small splint. Unusually there is a 3" wide and 15" high protruding section of wall around the floor of the monitoring room and the base of the shaft. Much of the internal woodwork is painted bright green.
