No Playing Around
War-time installations on Flotta, one of the Orkney islands in Scapa Flow, can still be seen - at Stanger Head (above) and at Roan Head (below). During the First World War, the Royal Navy constructed an 18-hole golf course
at Roan Head, but this is no longer visible from ground level. It has, however, been subjected to aerial photography as have a number of Scottish courses which have simply disappeared. Some of the findings are to be found in the BBC website item, Forgotten Greens.
