Archaeology Notes

NS38SW 104 c.3043 8183

A possible searchlight platform is situated on the sea wall about 100m SE of the Queen's Hotel. A rounded stone tower incorporated into the sea wall adjacent to a slipway, has had a sloping concrete platform inserted into its landward side. The platform appears to be connected with a square ended building on the SE side.
