USS Iowa firing its guns in the North Atlantic off Cape Wrath 1986

The sparsely populated glens and lochs of the Highlands and Islands provide a secluded shelter and hiding place for the various military establishments that are located there. The region is a hive of military activity, offering training areas for the low flying aircraft from the RAF bases at Kinloss and Lossiemouth, bombing ranges at Cape Wrath and Tain, and numerous defence research facilities. Nearly two thirds of major facilities operational in 1980 are still in use.
