On Ofcom’s website I did find “Maritime mobile” and “Aeronautical radio-navigation” bands listed at 505 - 526.5kHz though.

Knowing your location and the open aspect to the south-west, I would be inclined to accept that either of those two bands may well be responsible.

Sudden thought: In terms of a straight line view, could Belfast airport navigational aids be responsible?

Burakkucat - if airports are candidates then the airport on Tiriodh (Tiree) is near and it is to the south just over the horizon, open sea view, can see Colla from the top of the bank on a very good day, which is in the way anyway, obscuring Tiriodh behind it further to the south.

To the west we have the airport on the Tràigh Mhòr Eilean Bharraigh (Barra), 61 miles away, which is on the north-west side of the island facing towards us.

There is an airport at Baile a’ Mhanaich on the west side of Beinn a’ Bhaoghla (Benbecula) 59 miles away, but it is on the west side of the island, mind you the island is extremely flat. That is to the west but Beinn nan Càrn above the house and then the Cuilfhionn mountain range itself are both in the way, if that matters, but anyway we are very much in the shadow of Beinn nan Carn in that direction.

There used to be a pair of rocket tracking installations one place in Uibhist a-Deas (South Uist) and an observing station on Hiort (St Kilda) but I don't know if they are still going. The former is on the wrong side of the Uibhist mountains though anyway.
