77. Glen Mallan, Loch Long (NS 249 967)

The berth at Glen Mallan is connected to the munitions store at Glen Douglas[76] by an MoD owned road. Built in the late 1970s the primary task of the jetty is loading and unloading munitions as well as general stores to Royal Fleet Auxilary ships and warships. The explosives handling licence for the jetty allows up to 440,000 kg of explosive to be handled at the jetty at any time, four times the amount that can be handled at Crombie[96]. Royal Fleet Auxiliaries are the main ships to be seen at Glen Mallen being loaded and unloaded prior to transporting munitions around the UK.

The z-berth at the same site is no longer operational.
