Craigkelly Transmitting Station

One of the principal television transmission masts in Central Scotland, the Craigkelly Transmitting Station is located on The Binn, a mile (1.5 km) north of Burntisland in Fife. Commissioned in 1971, the mast takes the form of a free-standing lattice steel tower, 125m (410 feet) in height, and broadcasts digital and analogue television and radio to Edinburgh, Fife and the Lothians, together with other telecommunications services. The power of the analogue transmitter is 100kW, reducing to 2kW for digital signals.

This station will convert from analogue to digital-only transmission on the 15th June 2011, the last in Scotland to switch.
