Rumster Forest is the most northerly main station in mainland Britain, bringing tv and FM radio to the Caithness and Sutherland area in NE Scotland.

Despite being an Arqiva site Classic fm is not transmitted.

Since Peter's photos were taken much work has been done at Rumster Forest for DSO...

It's mid-September 2008 and Rumster Forest was one of the first sites where a helicopter was used to lift the old main antenna off the top of the mast and lift its replacement up almost immediately afterwards.
