Remembering RAF Edzell

Connect and share memories about RAF Edzell, Scotland.

Of all the places I have lived while growing up a "Navy Brat", Edzell, Scotland is, without a doubt, my favorite. Though I didn't appreciate it then, the time spent there are some of the fondest memories of my life.

We lived in Scotland from 1975-1978. I experienced the Scottish culture first hand when we lived in a 300 year old farm house while waiting for housing on base. I attended Scottish schools and made many friends who I had unfortunately lost touch with, though I am thrilled to say I have reestablished contact with many of them through the internet.

My fondest memories though, are of the times we lived at the base. I enjoyed being able to walk to the movies, snack bar, gym, bowling alley, raquetball courts, tennis courts, Loch Wee and YAC, all of which I frequented often.  

This site was created to share some of those memories  with others who lived there. Most of my photos reflect my teenage interests at the time - my friends, from on and off base. If you lived there during the same time frame, you just might find a picture of yourself within these pages. I hope you will share your photos and memoris with us as well.
 
I truly hope this community brings back as many good memories for you as it does for me.
 
Best wishes to all of you and thanks for being here!

Where was the farm house you lived in? I spent a year living in the Gatekeeper's house on the Fasque Estate in Fettercairn.

It was the Vayne Farm in Fern, Angus County, near Brechin. I will be posting photos of it later this week (along with lots of other photos!).

Thanks for joining the group!
