RNAS Caldale is a former Royal Naval Air Service airship station located 2.1 miles (3.4 km) west of Kirkwall, Orkney and 4.1 miles (6.6 km) south east of Finstown, Orkney, Scotland. It was constructed in 1915 and was operational from 1916 until 1920.
However this was fraught was danger as during November 1917 SSP-2 and SSP-4 were both destroyed in high winds with the crew of SSP-4 lost at sea. Not long after these losses and other damage caused to airships due to the wind the Admiralty decided to close the airship station and move the airship further south on mainland Britain.
The site is currently open land.
