The platoon advance to contact along the partially wooded Barry Ridge can be challenging due to varying plantation density and you may experience a surprise or two up there. The narrow width of the woodland atop the ridge makes it perfect for funnelling opposing night patrols into one another. You should be okay at this time of year, though when early morning sea mist persists a quick check of your compass is in order to ensure you assault out of the FUP on the correct bearing. There is a large wooded area bordering the war memorial that is ideal for nav. exercises and a network of drainage ditches that provide cover for movement during section attacks.
Did a camp there with my ACF county couple of years back. Locality is Buddon ness, a promontary of land east of Dundee that is as flat as a fluke IIRC. Good accommodation, great training area. Food was OK but not sure if caterers are on site or brought in. Good off camp facilities as well if you get the chance. Hope this helps.
Barry Butlins? Bloody Barren was what it was called in my day, though the 90's were a while a go.
January 97 saw temperatures of around -15-20C and the entirety of GSUOTC 1st year being moved in to the newly built accommodation blocks when people started hallucinating....I seem to remember getting the feeling back in the big toe on my right foot sometime around easter
Spent the night in the lighthouse more than once after moving to the TA and must say the curry house in Broughty Ferry was excellent.....particularly when your soldiers are back in the lighthouse having fish suppers (my OC and 2ic dragged us along to keep us away from he bad influence of our PL Sgts)
Unlike previous poster recommends, go to Dundee!
Can be a bit rough, but so can any place nowadays.
Plenty of good pubs in the city centre, try Yuppies or the social, always packed with flange.
Then on to Fat Sams, three floors of fun, kids on the bottom, middle agers (like me) in the middle listening to old dance music then 80s for the pensioners upstairs. Also try London nightclub nearby, although that tends to be a pound a fight most nights.
Plenty of kebabs shops etc outside that area to quench your drunken hunger.
As for the camp, really nice these days, training area just ok.
