Visited this with Bryag on Friday night - absolutely foul weather for it :(

It was opened in 1965, and was a 1991 closure.

A little info c/o Subbrit :

LOCKED All surface features remain intact with the green paint in good condition. A metal dome on the ventilation shaft indicates this was a master post. The hatch is locked internally but can be opened with a Scottish 'T' bar key. Internally the post is flooded to a depth of 8"
We'd visited previously, had no joy getting in, so we WD'd and returned with our new T-bar Key (if anyone needs a technical diagram of a Scottish T-bar key, PM me :thumb)

We opened her up, to discover that things had detiorated since Subbrits visit - seriously flooded!

Bryag got down the hatch, and started pumping - good man :thumb

Between his manic pumping, and my hauling up jerrycans full of water, after over an hour, we got it down to a do-able (in wellies :p) level, and what a treat it was!

Pics aren't great, no tripod and flash only :(

Always nice to see one of these:

Unusual to see bunks in a '91 closure :

This contraption had us stumped - any ideas?

This was a master post, all wiring etc. still there, plug and play :D

Our saviour!

Seems this had always had a problem with damp, there were 3 pairs of wellies hooked on to the top of the ladder when we opened the hatch :rolleyes:

The view up :

A few of the Highland posts we've seen have some interesting colour schemes - this had green walls, yellow woodwork, and red everything else :eek:

Thank God the carpet was underwater...

Really enjoyed this one, in spite of getting soaked through, must get back when we've more time and get it dried out!
