Archaeology Notes

NN15NE 6.03 c.1753 5662

Photographed in 2007 as part of a survey of 20th century Defences of Scotland and to enhance and augment the existing holdings of the National Monuments Record Scotland.

Information from RCAHMS (DE), April 2007

A second stone built oval shaped pillbox or machine-gun position is siuated about 40m NW upslope from NN15NE 6.02. Measuring about 3m on the long axis by 2m.

Two concrete loopholes were noted with a possible third in a heavily damaged section of the wall.

It is not possible to ascertain from the surviving remains whether this was a pillbox or a second machine-gun position, its location, in a central position, relative to the other wartime strcutures in the area, would suggest the latter.
