Westerglen Transmitting Station

Westerglen Transmitting Station is located 2 miles (3 km) southwest of Falkirk. It began operating in 1936 and is now owned by broadcasting infrastructure company Arqiva, which inherited the transmission assets of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) that were privatised in 1997. The station comprises three tall lattice-steel masts and a control building. It transmits BBC and commercial radio services with a power of up to 125 kW, including BBC Radio 5 and Radio Scotland on medium-wave and Radio 4 on long-wave, the latter in conjunction with Burghead Transmitting Station and Droitwich in England, which together reach seafarers and well into Continental Europe.
