This wreck site is about 400m south-east of the summit of Carn a’ Ghille Chearr in the Cromdale Hills, at an altitude of about 670m near the source of the Allt na Ha.

The site consists of a small area of debris hidden in an area of gullies and peat bogs. All that remains of the Whitley bomber are a few pieces of wreckage, with the only recognisable piece being a section of undercarriage.

The ACSS website has some information about the crash and photos of the site here.

These pictures were taken in May 2014.
