Porthkerry Viaduct (Porthkerry Park, Barry) added to Bridges in Wales by vrsdazitup on 04/07/2024

Lovely park area with a very scenic Viaduct with dual rails going across. There is a large field on the side I took the photo from. There is no access to this field nearby. I took off on the car park near by the arches of the bridge. Please note this is within a FRZ of Cardiff Airport. Applied at https://nsf.nats.aero pretty easily and had confirmation the following day. Once on-site you call Cardiff ATC for permission to take off. They'll ask you to confirm how long you plan on flying for, you'll agree to terms over the phone and they give any required warnings. You call them once you are finished. This was my first time applying to fly in a FRZ and it was very simple.

The Ailesbury Column Savernake Forest (By Kirky)

Ailesbury Column Savernake Forest Wiltshire,
Been trying to get this shot for ages after my third journey to this location I managed it, its a gorgeous place with stunning surroundings with lots & lots of history, parking can be a bit of a nightmare but is doable followed by a short walk for TOAL, some parts of the forest have signs saying private so be mindful of that, I adhered to the notices & stayed this side of the forest on a deep grass verge over looking the forest,
All in all just a lovely place & worth a visit & a stroll in the forest if that's your thing also this is where the big bellied oak tree is I shall attach links, was very quiet when I visited.

Loch Bay, Stein, Skye (By AlbionDrones)

Picturesque Stein village and waterfront - with the oldest public house on Skye - from the sunny but windy beach, just past the jetty - a couple of boats coming into the moorings, the MV Elena C - run by the family business of Diver's Eye - and the sailing dinghy Poppy - to come in another video...

Crichton Memorial Church (By AspieTravels)

Join me for Part 1 as I explore by DJI Drone, the beauty of Crichton Memorial Church, Dumfries, Scotland designed by renowned architect Sydney Mitchell. Built between 1890-97, this non-denominational church is a must-visit for history and architecture enthusiasts. This stunning building is the focal point of the 85-acre Crichton Estate.

I stayed at the adjacent Holiday Inn hotel and asked permission of the manager there if i could TOAL from the adjacent car park and that was no issue.

George Stephenson's Brussleton Incline on the historic Stockton and Darlington Railway, officially opened on September 27, 1825.

From their web site "Llanthony Secunda Priory remains of a once large and important Augustinian Priory which was founded outside the city walls in 1136. A scheduled monument with listed buildings that have played an important part in Gloucester’s history for over 900 years."

It was a nice open area with no big trees in the close proximity!

SULA Light Ship (By BudgieUK)

I was staying at the adjacent Premiere Inn, so car parking was not an issue, but there is a shopping centre within a few minutes walk, so parking there should not be a problem for an hour.
It was hard to know what section to put this in, its on the Sharpness Canal, its effectively a lighthouse, but its also a hotel!

Duntulm Castle, Trotternish, Skye (By AlbionDrones)

Romantic ruins of the MacDonald stronghold on the exposed NE coast of Skye, only a short walk along the peninsula from the roadside parking - which gets extremely busy...

Views on a good day stretch from the Quirang to Lewis and Harris in the Outer Hebrides, but the wind is the issue - we have visited 3 times, an only once wad the wind below 30mph - and even then it was 20mph gusting higher, just within the capabilities of my AIR3, although you can definitely see a few bumpy bits of air as the drone is bounced around...
