NMRS Report: (30/09/2004)
NC91SE 32.08 97120 10455
A partially earth covered bunker is visible on postwar RAF vertical air photographs (CPE/Scot/UK 225, 3425-3426, flown 27 June 1946) immediately E of a dyke on Crackaig Links. The bunker which would appear to have an large open vent forms part of the wartime development of this radar station.
The bunker would appear to have had the earth covering removed since 1946 as it is depicted on the current OS digital 1:2500 scale map as an upstanding structure. It can be seen as a concrete structure, still retaining the large open vent, on more recent Fairey Survey vertical air photographs (colour), (Fairey Surveys Ltd, SDD Coastal strip, 42. 241- 42. 243, flown 28 May 1975).
