On a hilltop above the townships of Sheigra and Blairmore can be
found the remains of a wartime RAF radio direction finding station.

Little information can be found about these stations but it seems likely that
this one was used to help locate German U-boats operating in the Atlantic.

Cables ran between each mast and the main building in shallow trenches - this one is flooded.

A view of the building from a different direction, with another cable trench.

Not surprisingly, the brick structure is in pretty poor condition, with no wooden fixtures remaining.

Looking in through the window - clearly a lot of sheep have sheltered here.

The view from the station showing the mountains on the horizon.
