NW – Ballaugh

Ballaugh is a great site with an 800 ft ridge and a 754 foot top to bottom. Access is up the hill from the front if you have a 4×4 with good ground clearance or from the rear if no 4×4 is available. The tracks are now very rutted in places. There are easy take-offs and huge top landings with plenty of fields out front and to the north for bottom landings. This is a good safe site and works with winds from 8 mph NW although it can get very bumpy on thermic days towards the top end of the wind range.
