Loch Fitty and St Ninians Former Opencast Mine - Added to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Scotland

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

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

Parking can be tricky for this one, on the B912 you will see a war monument and there is space for 2 cars, I think parking anywhere else is on private property and will be frowned upon.

Walk down past the monument, past the Stables and you will reach a couple little bridges, this is where I flew from and as always, quite early so that I wasn't upsetting anyone.

The two mounds are artificial and this was built on the old mine, was supposed to be a wellness centre at some point but think development was halted.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 08/10/2021. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
