First World War Coastal Battery - Added to Historic Buildings in Scotland

I have just added this to the map of places to fly your drone at Drone Scene:

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

Over a hundred years old and in surprisingly good condition.

Park at the Hoxa Head car park and then walk over the hill and down to the Coastal Batteries - the walk is about a mile in total and ascends about 300ft.

Hoxa Head is quite exposed, so choose a still and calm day, and be aware of the birdlife, the Oystercatchers and Tern's are quite formidable and will mob both the drone and yourself if you stray too close to their ground nests.

There is also a pleasant beach Sands of Wright that you pass on the way to the car park, and also do make time to visit the Tapestry Gallery, stunning contemporary tapestry, painting nd photographic prints…

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 28/06/2023. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
