RAF Milltown
RAF Milltown
This an entrance to RAF Milltown on the B9103 road to Lossiemouth,just opposite Balliesland Farm. Milltown was originally a "dummy" or "Q" site to divert enemy attention from nearby RAF Lossiemouth during WWII. Developed later as a proper airfield but was eventually closed to flying in 1977 and is now a communications centre covered with a forest of aerials. The old perimeter tracks are used today on the Milltown Stages Rally.
