Faraid Head, also known as Far Out Head in Durness, Scotland.Faraid Head (Scottish Gaelic, An Fharaird) is a small peninsula on the northern coast of Sutherland, Highland, Scotland, located around 2 miles (3.2 km) north of the hamlet of Balnakeil and 3 miles (4.8 km) north of Durness.
At the point is located a small radar station built in the 1950s to house a ROTOR radar system to provide radar coverage of Scotland's north coast. By the time the facility was completed however the ROTOR system had become obsolete and the station was closed down but remained in the hands of the Ministry of Defence. In later years the main building was renovated as a control tower for the Cape Wrath and Garvie Island bombing ranges.
