Caldale RNAS Airship station no 1

Caldale RNAS Airship station no 1 1917 or so
One of 3 photos of the RNAS airship station at Caldale which operated during WW1. I have an album of several of these, the 3 uploaded are a selection.
Not sure if windy Orkney was a wise choice for doing what they are doing in the top section of this one!

Anyone know where the top pic was taken?
It doesn't look like Wideford Hill in the background, doesn't look steep enough, mind you the house near the tail could be Heathfield!?

Jim any chance we can put these pics on the ARGOS site (Aircraft Research Group Orkney & Shetland)
Added by Magnus Ritch on 07 May 2010
Yes of course use them on the ARGOS site, these and the others I put up are probably the best ones but I'll have another look at the rest.

Looks like Heathfield farmhouse in the back right, and I guess the house on the left must be Caldale
Added by Alastair on 09 May 2010
The top picture is most certainly looking towards Wideford Hill showing Heathfield House on the right with the steading just visible to the left of the house as we look at it.
