A radio station was constructed in late 1905 as part of an experimental transatlantic radio system. It operated until December 1906 when the mast fell over during a storm.

The Wireless Station was never used again, but it was depicted on the OS 25-inch map (Argyllshire 1921, sheet cclvi 12 & 8) revised in 1915, and annotated as 'Wireless Telegraph Station (disused)'. As mapped it comprised a large building and three smaller buildings, the mast base and the anchor points for the guy lines.

Modern aerial photography shows many the concrete base of the main building, the mast base and anchor points.
