Pilot reviews of Wigtown Airfield

14 Apr 11 - Robert Tait - Elgin, Scotland
I landed here in June 2010. I would not recommend anyone to land here. The concrete is potholed and full of weeds. Cars have been driving round the old runways leaving paths that you can see in the picture. Very definitely a foot inspection required before landing here! It is a shame because it is a super area to visit.

Wigtown is an old WW2 disused airfeild in SW Scotland near Wigtown Bay. I have used it several times over the past 15 years and was home to at least one aircraft until recently - a DR1050 Jodel. This has now been sold and the airfeild is presently not used. The one remaining part of the old concrete runways that was useable at the end of 24 is now disappearing rapidly into the weeds and is not recomended unless you have visited the airfeild on foot to survey it.
It looks terrible from the air, but is not too bad when you visit on foot. The airfield itself is owned by a local farmer My Sproat 01988 42215. It is a great pity because this is a beautifull part of scotland for flying and the only other option was West Freugh which has also now closed. Please feel to contact me for more information.
