Hawklaw Y Station was a Government listening station located north of Cupar in Fife which operated between 1942 and 1988.


The building was built with windows in the Art Deco style and completed by 1942.[1] During the Second World War it operated as a Y-station collecting information for analysts at Bletchley Park.[1] Unlike other Y stations Hawklaw did not close after the War but continued as a Cold War monitoring station under the aegis of Government Communications Headquarters until it closed in 1988.[2]
