Following the advice of UK and Scottish Governments, NCAP has now returned to limited operations in our offices.

We are now able to process orders for not-yet-digitised aerial imagery, to revised delivery timescales.

- Image purchasing options will be limited (Canmore, Britain from Above, Scran, NCAP)

- Any enhanced services which require a log in will be unavailable (My Canmore, Britain from Above contributions, Scran contribute)

 

General access to these services will all continue. Enquiries will still be able to be submitted.

We anticipate services to be restored from Monday 1st February 2021.

 

 

 

Cold War Scotland

The Cold War was a period of sustained political and military tension which existed between the western (USA and NATO) and eastern (Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact) powers from 1947-1991.
 
Scotland occupies a strategic position between continental Europe and the North Atlantic, and a variety of installations were built there during the Cold War by the UK and NATO. From submarine bases and airfields to military ports and nuclear bunkers, traces of Cold War construction can be seen across Scotland, and a selection of aerial images of these are featured in this gallery.
