Before the gravel quarry at West Hynish

In 1966, a temporary Decca Hifix radio camp was established at West Hynish (left edge of photo) at the location of what is today a quarry. One of the technicians stationed at the camp took this photo from some way up the south shoulder of Ben Hynish. Skerryvore Lighthouse is just visible 1/4 of the way along the horizon from the left.
