Field Visit (27 November 1996)

NK06SW 29 centred 02641 64292

A pre-afforestation survey of two small areas of land in the vicinity of Fraserburgh airfield was undertaken by Headland Archaeology (NMRS MS 899/35) in November 1996. No surface traces of the RAF camp associated with the airfield survive above ground level, in what is now arable land, although the the locations of the anti-blast shelters had been depicted on the 1:2500 OS map (1975) and the approximate positions of the former buildings are visible on vertical aerial photographs (106G/Scot/Uk108, frames 4004-5, 23 May 1946).
