WMO03075, Wick Airport

58 27 14N 03 05 24W
Altitude 38 metres

Estimated Class 3, fails Class 2 on 13.8% hardstanding within 30 metres, limit 10%

UHI, airport, some urban not far, generally open Scottish east coast.

Curiosity, there looks like an old met enclosure close to the left. This looks like it was also Class 3 (although a control tower shadow might be possible if it is the control tower). This raises questions on why the new site is not well located. I also ask why the presumably untended grass in the enclosure has not grown green and long.
