Minewatchers' Post: view of interior
Minewatchers' Post: view of interior
This was the second of three minewatchers' posts located on the shore between Bowling and Old Kilpatrick. This second post, already weakened by the loss of the outer wall on the side facing the Clyde, had collapsed altogether by the start of 2015: NS4572 : Ruins of minewatchers' post.

For the main description of this structure, see: NS4572 : Minewatchers' Post.

The front wall (where the lookout slit was located) has fallen away, allowing two short sections of internal wall to be seen; these almost divide the interior in two, and extend from beside the entrances (which are located in the rear part of the two side walls).
