Archaeology Notes

NH88NW 4 centred 8004 8842

(NH 800 885) Selected as a Satellite Landing Ground it closed during 1945. Re-opening in 1967, services to Inverness and Wick proved uneconomic. Occasionally still used.

D J Smith 1983.

Dornoch airstrip is situated to the S of the town and W of the dunes. Only the airstrip could be seen on the date of visit.
