Archaeology Notes

NR75SW 43 71250 50369

A brick and concrete observation post has been recorded by the Defence of Britain Project to the W of the A83 road, about 650m SW of Tighnadrochit farmsteading. The building is of two storeys and is visible on postwar vertical air photographs (RAF CPE/Scot/UK 278, 3054-3055, flown 25 August 1947) with an arrow shaped target indicator immediately to the S.

This structure is probably linked to the possible bombing range NR74NW 32
