Boom defence Depot, Mellon Charles

The former Boom defence site at Mellon Charles, Loch Ewe. Submarine nets were places across the mouth of Loch Ewe at this point to protect the gathering Russian Convoys that used the Loch as a safe haven. The site was apparently still in use until recently. The fenced area is an automated weather station operation by the MET Office. Map location.
