Cold War to Storm Force
RAF Aird Uig, north-west Lewis, is to be transformed from a Cold War spy base to a listening station for whales. It's part of a development to attract visitors by the Gallan Head Community Trust. The details are on the STV website and the official handover of the former installation takes place today. There will probably be no need to listen out for the signs of weather as Storm Gertrude is forecast to impact imminently with this exposed headland. At least the gates will not be closed.
