NS27NW 21.01 20295 75793, 20307 75838 and 20448 76021

Three searchlight positions linked to the Cloch Battery situated upslope to the E, have been noted by the Defence of Britain Project to the N and S of the Cloch Lighthouse. All are built of brick and concrete, the most complete being that situated at NS 20295 75793 which was painted white during 1997. The searchlight bay on the platform at NS 20307 75838 has been reduced to half height. That at NS 20448 76021 has been partly demolished and re-used as a viewing point, the reduced walls being capped by stones.
