The skeletal remains of a Wellington bomber which came to grief in the Angus hills between Ben Tirran and Muckle Cairn on 9 August 1942. The aircraft was believed to have been on a test flight from Lossiemouth when it lost part of an engine cowling, damaging a propeller and causing engine failure. Whilst attempting a forced landing, the aircraft crashed with the loss of four crew. Remarkably, the tail gunner survived the accident.
