    Following up on info provided by Alir147:thumb I recce'd this site myself, then did a proper explore with Zimbob, on Tuesday 18th January.

    A little history:
    OK, so that's the history lesson, on with the pics.

    On arrival at the site, we spotted security

    As it was rocky moorland, there were nice pathways laid between all the buildings

    This is just one of the many defences around Loch Ewe. Sadly, there is little left of the others. We did visit the remains, and either Zimbob has already posted them, or I/he/we will shortly:thumb

    The Command post - I rather liked the stilts :eek:
    wayoutwest15jan2008032.jpg

    Noticed this stencilled inside:

    Must have been more recent visitors to the site, from what I can gather...
    (Royal Corps of Signals website)

    A shot of one of the emplacements in action:

    Moody (or crappy :eek:) shot:
    wayoutwest15jan2008027.jpg

    I was loving the corrosion on this site - salt spray even up here, had to keep cleaning the lense:
    wayoutwest15jan2008016.jpg

    Good old West Coast favourite wriggly tin again - used as shuttering throughout:
    wayoutwest15jan2008010.jpg

    These handy wee paths went to all installations:

    Last shot of the site, great location!

    Really enjoyed this one, in spite of the freezing weather :D
