Training areas-Scotland

#1
Was wondering if anyone could suggest any decent areas in Scotland. Dont know the Trg areas there that well but looking for somewhere within a few hours of Edinbrugh.

Have in mind somewhere with either afghan style compounds (or could be used as) or even old NI patrol bases. Really I just want to put someone in a sangar, and maybe practice opening and closing gates.

cheers

used to be lots of space around Cultybraggan if I remember correctly.

The stuff at Swynnerton would be ideal, but just a bit too far to travel from Edinbrugh!

Have used barry butlans, the pentlands and garleoch head (sp?), all good areas, but not quite what im after this time!

I can't think of any training areas in Scotland with Afghan mock ups or FOBs.

Your best bet would be heading a couple hours South to Otterburn/Warcop.

Kirkcudbright has a ex tankie training area, alternatively you could use the airfield outside of West Freugh.

closer to 3 hours from Edinburgh but think of the scenary.

Livingston, Glasgow, Cowdenbeath, Paisley, Dunfermline, Stirling, Dundee. Aberdeen if you take the train.

Why don't you check the relevant Land Forces Standing Order (LFSO). From memory it is LFSO 1406, which lists all training areas, the available facilities and the method of booking.

Kirkcudbright has a NI patrol base compete with fence and sangars.

It also has some nice live fire areas and some very nice range staff, IIRc you can fire everything up to and including MLRS there.
