Saxa Vord, Shetland

The Saxa Vord site in the Shetland Islands has had a radar since 1957, which gives early warning of any aircraft approaching from the North. This data is fed into the Integrated Command and Control System within the UK. Formerly an RAF station, Saxa Vord today is known as Remote Radar Head Saxa Vord. Former RAF Benbecula is also a Remote Radar Head station.

The former RAF station at Saxa Vord has been redeveloped into a ground-breaking new tourism venture: Britain's first "residential natural and cultural heritage activity centre", all based on the fascinating and spectacular island of Unst.
