    Visited this on Boxing Day with my brother, after the abortive attempt at HMS Jackdaw.

    This was a twin 6-pounder emplacement, part of the Firth of Forth Defences, I belive it's originally WW1, though I couldn't find out too much about it.
    Unfortunately failing light prevented seeing Braefoot Battery, just round the corner, which I belive is the better of the two, still, next time :)
    The approach...

    Unfortunately the roof had partially collapsed :( There were loads of these railings surrounding it all, they looked kinda fresh for WW2, and I'm not sure when it was stood-down, any info would be good....

    I figured these would have been CASLs, but they had triple slits rather than a single opening?

    Mounting for the gun...

    Seemed to be rails running round the outside of the mounting, unsure as to why, again, any ideas would be nice :)

    Small structure on it's own, unusual window layout...

    Magazines etc. were pretty much above-ground, and kinda chavved, loads of graffitti, so I'll not bother with the pics.

    Lastly, a strange wee hoist, near nothing I could find :crazy

    I'll be back to do Braefoot though :D
