    Mugdock AA Battery is another part of the Clyde AA defences from WW2.
    It survives in a reasonably consolidated condition as it is within a country park.
    The battery never fired a shot in anger as the german planes typically followed paths up the river clyde or over loch Lomond both of which are over 5 miles away.
    The battery consists of 4 gun emplacements and a control bunker
    so onto the battery

    you can see the magazines staggered around the gun emplacements at a 90 degree angle behind blast walls.

    you can also see the one remaining part of the living quarters in the background. there are around a dozen hut bases there too.

    every gun emplacement shows where the guns would have been mounted.


    the control bunker has 4 entrances , all behind blast walls



    there is also a solitary bunker of 3 rooms around 100 yards from the battery. in the background of this pic is a watertank which supplied the battery.
    there was a spotters platform atop this during the war as it was at the top of a hill whereas the battery was a little down the slope.

    but its 3 feet deep in mud so I wasn't attempting that
