Colin Dalziel writes "Free-standing towers are the exception rather then the rule for structures over 50m. This one had a previous existence as the first (circa 1957) tower installed at (I think) Emley Moor, but brought to Scotland in the early 1970s for the opening of the UHF TV service in East Central Scotland."

Robert took these next two shots from Burntisland...

The next two shots were also taken from Burntisland, by Dan Glover.
Dan's photo gives us our first look at the tower since its DSO upgrade:
