I was on the way to Aberz and had been doing a few days touring decrepit places (most of them farms so you won't see them posted here) and I decided to go off the beaten track with TS and go off to Drummuir.

Drummuir ROC has been locked up with padlocks and is in a very muddy field with very friendly sheltand ponies.


An aircraft post stands nearby, outside the compound; it is approximately 7 X 5 and is built from concrete blocks. It originally consisted of an open topped observation area approximately 5' X 5' and a crew room with a sloping tin sheet as a roof. A tin roof has been added over the observation room as well. There is a wooden door at one end which is locked.
Doesn't look as pretty as it did in 2003 (http://www.subbrit.org.uk/rsg/roc/db/987421053.html)

Good to see you're oot'n'aboot again :thumb

That field is ridiculously muddy! Shame the post is locked, although it was seriously stripped when I was there in 2007/2008 - nowt but empty tinnies, and pub ashtrays :

Awww, that makes me sad seeing the picture of the sign you got in comparison with mine. :(

Nice to see the kiddiewinkles made a den without burning the post. :)
