Courier & advertiser end of may 2011

The loch where the Dambusters legendary bouncing bombs were tested is up for sale

The WW2 bombs made famous in the1950s movie were tested on LOCH STRIVEN on the Glenstriven estate in Argyll

It was chosen because the landscape resembled teh area of Germany where the bombs , codenamed UPKEEP were to be dropped.

The estate is up for sale as a whole or in up to eight lots - prices range from 235,000 to 2,500,000



addit see the (Glasgow herald ) has a longer write up with stories that the residents were moved out of the area in WW2 and that the Dundee Uni are to retrieve the 3 bombs that are on the loch floor ...
