The concrete and brick remains of a wartime building, once part of the Cloch Battery and now an outdoor seating space, stand immediately NNW of the A770 public road and 43m ENE of a searchlight emplacement (NS27NW 21.06). Reduced to its floor level, the rectangular building measures about 18m from ENE to WSW by 5.5m transversely over a single skin of rendered brick. A doorway stood in the centre of the SSE wall and a set of steps leads up to the road level. The internal layout can be traced on the concrete floor, and there is evidence for four rooms, including a single toilet in the NE corner.
