A former Nato spy base that wouldn't look out of place in a James Bond movie has gone on the market for a cool £1.1 million.

But as well as an interesting history, the eavesdropping post has a look to match as it resembles a GIANT golf ball - which is how locals refer to it.

Opened by Princess Anne in 1985, the 60ft spherical structure masked the dishes and aerials of the Nato base at Balado Bridge in Kinross-shire.

It was officially designated a SATCOM II Satellite Ground Listening Station.
