A roofless concrete structure with concrete pillars noted during a walkover survey in June 2008. <1> The survey report suggests that these date from WW2 due to the location and views over Loch Linnhe. However, a rifle range is depicted on the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey map c.1900 with targets marked in this location. It is possible that the site was re-used by the military. <2>
