WMO03080, Arboyne No.2, Scotland

57 04 33N 02 50 28W
Altitude 140 metres

Estimate Class 1/2, indeterminate, unstable environment with stored glider trailers and vehicle parking. Probably fine for Class 1, essentially four roads but area seems to meet Class 1 of <=10%

UHI, none.

Flying club, gliders. Bet there is some excellent gliding and photos from the air.

Google street view from A93 available.

So what is the situation over movable objects?

    I’m from aberdeen and this is my favourite part of Scotland. The road is very busy. Gliders are pulled by aircrafts.

  2. tchannon says:

    When I first saw that site I thought it looked a lovely area. Being in the lee of the highlands I assume it is relatively sunny and dry, hence the gliding.

  3. Jiri says:

    Yes, Deeside volley is warmer (also less wind) than surrounding hills or the coast. That’s why me and the Queen like this place.
