Longman Fields, Inverness

This photograph shows the Longman Fields (also known as Longman Meadows) that became the site of Scotland's first municipal 'airport', the Longman Aerodrome in Inverness. In reality, the site was to consist of two closely-mown cross runways and some wooden hangars and workshops. It was officially opened by the Duke and Duchess of Sutherland on 17 June 1933 and remained in operation until the mid-1940s.

The Beauly Firth can be seen in the background.
