55. Mormond Hill, Aberdeenshire. (NJ 981 570)

Mormond Hill.

The vast communications site on the eastern side of Mormond Hill near Fraserburgh was station 44 in the US North Atlantic Radio System, which ran from Iceland to Fylingdales in Yorkshire. The NARS was used as an early warning radar system between 1961 and 1992. The hill was home to a number of tropospheric scatter antennas, including those used by the USAF, the British Army and BT. The USAF left Mormond Hill in 1992, and the site was transferred to the Ministry of Defence in 1993. The site is now used for commercial operations by BT. Below is a photo of Mormond Hill, with the circular troposcat antennas to the right.
