Tips

Yep concur with all that has been stated, but would add that frequently,due to the hill on he west side,landing on 27 can be very tricky with 'local wind' conditions.I would suggest that whereever possible land on 09 (in over the water/golf course). You can judge the approach better, you are going uphill, the wind generally favours, and if it all goes pear shaped there is no ditch to go into
I have landed there a lot of times, and have witnessed a lotincluding one in the ditch, which I watched in disbelief as it happened.
Great place to fly into and you also have he Kingarth Hotel for pub grub, plus the beaches etc.

Happy flying
