Harestone Moss Limited
Low-lying grasslands and peaty soil are the dominant feature of Harestone Moss, just north of Aberdeen. Intensively farmed for many decades, the site served as a ‘Q-site’ decoy airfield in the Second World War. It even has its own bomb craters to prove it. Now it is being transformed: the intensity of the farming is being significantly dialled back, a unique underground tourist enterprise is being created with recycled infrastructure, and nature is being allowed to flourish around restored wetlands
