Constructed of stone, concrete and brick, there are hut-bases, the main power-house and standby set-house with blast walls. Both the Transmitter and Receiver blocks are also protected by blast walls on which there is the date 1941 carved. The base for the aerial and one shelter also survive. The accommodation camp (NC03SW 21.01) is about a mile down the road at Rubha Stoer. <1>
