School children to save range targets on Cape Wrath firing range


Recommended Posts

When I was in Sutherland 1992-2000 about 30 miles short of Cape Wrath at a place called Eliphin, there were no target to see as such, a number of elctronic devices, the main target area was a small island close off shore which was pounded by 500kg bombs and probably 30mm cannon.


The range at RAF Tain was also used and had several interesting targets such as Conquerors 432 ferrets Other stuff left over from Fleet Air Arm days such as a Daimler A/C and several concreted Churchill Bridge layers and a M10 without a turret -which I think was recovered.


I do wonder what the agender of the RCAHMS is, both historical and envirnmental grounds have been used in the recent past to "control" sites preventing access to the general (non acedemically qualified) public.
