Spelga Reservoir - Added to Lakes and Reservoirs in Northern Ireland

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

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

Spelga Dam is located in the heart of The Mourne Mountains, it’s a man made dam built in 1960. Free car parking and public toilets adjacent to the dam. Set in a well-known hiking area with plenty of open space to fly and great scenery. Nearest shops, cafes & pubs 7 miles (10 mins drive) away in the town of Newcastle.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 25/10/2021. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.



Nice to see more NI locations being added by other members @Sam89 . :+1: If it’s not too late to edit the link it’s ‘Spelga’.
