Montreathmont Moor

A partially forested tract of moorland in the Valley of Strathmore in Central Angus, the Montreathmont Moor lies 4 miles (6.5 km) south of Brechin. A former communications station, situated at the centre of the moor, was associated with locating spies and intercepting German signals during World War II which were decoded in conjunction with the famous code-breakers at Bletchley Park in England. The remaining buildings were sold off by the government in 2004.
