Well, what a disappointment!

Took a trundle over to Kinloss earlier to have a look at the new gate guardian. Had to fight my way through camper vans tractors, combine harvesters and new age Findhorners to get there and then could hardly see the damned thing.

XV240 is in a beautiful position right at the side of the road, but unless you have a very high step ladder or a vehicle roof to perch upon, photography is all but impossible owing to the 3-4m high chain-link fencing. Perhaps when all the work is finished they may provide photography ports in the fence, but until such time, forget it!

240 looks great, in lovely condition with nothing missing except the FLIR turret (did she ever have one), all the latest antennae are there.
