This underground relic of the Cold War is one of only two refurbished ROC Monitoring Posts open for access in Scotland and includes a collection of original equipment and instrumentation, some of which are demonstrated. Enjoy a short talk followed by a guided tour. Access is via a 15ft vertical ladder and is not suitable for people with mobility difficulties although all are welcome to attend the above ground activities. Children must be aged 10+. A surface museum also houses memorabilia. Preceding the Cold War the ROC identified and reported hostile aircraft from 1925 - mid 50s. The remains of the observation area is on site and kitted out with the instrumentation used for this role.
