Testing…


It’s Monday! Time for more decay among beauty, this time from the former torpedo testing facility at the head of Loch Long in Arrochar. It was decommissioned in 1980 and is currently part demolished. Torpedoes were fired up Loch Long from tubes at the front of the facility. A boat stood by to recover the (unarmed) torpedoes where they were returned for analysis. The now roofless shed to the left and the main part of the building have tracks where torpedoes were stored and worked on. Hoists on the first floor lowered the torpedoes into the tubes.
