The Golf Ball Radar Station, Isle of Tiree, Scotland

dsc_0217

When you visit the Isle of Tiree, the one thing you will notice, wherever you are, is the golf ball shape on top of Ben Hynish.

Visible from most of the Island, the Radar Station sits on top of Ben Hynish, at 462 feet (141metres), the highest point on Tiree. It monitors trans Atlantic flights for the Civil Aviation Authority and as expected the station itself is out of bounds to visitors.
