WANLOCKHEAD

Walked past here on the way to a walk up Lowther Hill.

Wanlockhead is the highest village in Scotland, at an altitude of 467 metres, and home to a lead mining museum. I can also recommend driving the Mennock Pass from Mennock to Abington. Very scenic.




The only obvious change since the earlier pictures were taken is the addition of a VSat dish for telemetry.


The use of 4 yagis suggests difficulty in getting a good signal from Darvel.

Parked in the village, I noticed that FM radio from Black Hill chucked in a decent signal on the nationals and the likes of Clyde. You can also see the masts while coming down Lowther Hill. I wonder what the signal from Black Hill would have been like here?








Part of Wanlockhead and the view as seen by the yagis towards Darvel 24 miles away.
