So, first new explore we had been on in a while and what a good day we had for it. Brother_Bear, Calthing, TheMadOne and I all set off for a mooch around South Sutor.
South Sutor is just across the water from North Sutor, where we went on a previous occasion. Together the guarded the Cromarty Firth which was used as a base for the Royal Navy Home Fleet and the scene of the Invergordon Mutiny in 1931.
South Sutor - we had been told - was larger than North Sutor, however some of it was..."guarded"...by Boars which were being kept there by the landowner. The site was split into two halves - as the map shows. (Map found here)
Sadly, not only were the Boars there (at least 10) they also had young and as we didn't fancy being charged by them we left, vowing to return another day to see the rest of the site.
Anyway, on the the photos.
|The Fire Control Post, complete with camouflage paint and the blast shutters were still intact.|
|This door was rusted shut|
|A room with a view|
|The blast shutters|
|We found these, just along from the Fire Command Post- no idea what they are. Maybe storage for something|
|We found this in the undergrowth|
|The stairs were covered in moss|
|It lead to an engine room|
|The guard boars|
|Walking back we came across this in the woods|
|We think this was the Extended Defense Officers Post|
|It was surprisingly undamaged, door opened, blast shutter intact ect|
Watch this space, we will return
