Construction of Reay airfield began in 1941. Wartime use was as a dummy & diversionary airfield. More recently was used by on-site Dounreay Nuclear Plant for air movements associated with the site. The government ordered closure in 1994 and the runway is now used as a (hugely oversized) carpark for the Dounreay plant.

I LOLed when I saw that at first. Very descriptive, I wish more photographers were like that. Great job. 5 Stars.

The black Landrover Defender in the closest part of this carpark appears to have a roof mounted television camera.
