Former radio signal station
Former radio signal station
This was a Decca Navigator station in the North Scotland chain, with family accommodation for two resident engineers, one at each end of the building. The hall in the middle was the transmitter room. Three radio masts still stand on top of the hill (two can be seen behind the building here). The building has been put to alternative use as holiday accommodation.
