    So finally got round to putting this one up. Visited with Zimbob after he recommended the site.

    The Tank Farm was first built just after WW1 when the town of Invergordon was turned into a naval base. The tanks were mainly used for storing oil. In 1931 Invergordon was the site of the "Invergordon Mutiny" where 1000 sailors in the British Atlantic Fleet went on strike. In 1956 the site was de-commissioned.
    In 1941 a Junkers 88 is reported to have bombed the site.

    One tank was destroyed but there are conflicting reports regarding where any exploded.

    Anyway...on the with pics!


    First impression - the tanks seemed to go on forever.

    Seems that some were also used for storing water.

    There were a couple of brick tanks. Seems to be a mystery as to why...

    We then made our way into what we guessed was the boiler room

    Lots of the buttons and controls were left over

    Then we decided to make our way inside a tank

    After a brief scrabble we were in, and apologies for the dodgyness of the pictures.

    We then made our way up the stair on one of the tanks

    Before leaving, we had to pop into the warehouse type building by the entrance,

    This was a great site, would like to go again a look around now the nights are longer.
