Last weekend I went walking near Broad Law in the Southern Upland hills near Edinburgh, to look for the remains of a North American Harvard aircraft that crashed here in 1953. I found the site on a ridge of Broad Law above a wood, with excellent views of the surrounding hills.

The site lies at an altitude of about 550m, 2 km north-west of the summit of Broad Law, very close to the minor summit of Little Knock. There is a crater at the site filled with wreckage testifying to the severity of the crash, and scattered wreckage further down the hill, including a wing with landing gear.

You can see more about this site on my website here.
