    Spotting Info
    From the A710, head north and then west on the B793 towards Dalbeattie. After about a mile, the road bends right then sharply left. Turn right (straight on) here and follow the straight track. Head past the first entrance on the right, and after a large field and a lot of trees, the second entrance on the right takes you to the airfield. They only glide on Sundays, weather permitting, so if the gate is locked, it's a one mile walk up a steep Forestry Commission track to get to the hangar - and back down again. There are gaps and windows to look through to log the residents.
