Structure associated with WWII gun emplacements
For the main description of this structure, and for a closer view of the steps, see NS3977 : Structure associated with WWII gun emplacements. The present photo shows the remains of the entire NE wall of the building; see LinkExternal link for the parts located further back, among the trees.

There were a number of pits and other features visible alongside the remains of this particular building, which was of brick. Many scattered bricks lie nearby, some with still-legible names of Scottish brickworks stamped on them; for example, "Mount Vernon" and "Cadder".
WWII remains at Kilmalid :: NS4077
The structures at Kilmalid are associated with a Second World War Anti-Aircraft Battery; see LinkExternal link for Canmore's description of the site; that article includes aerial photographs of the gun emplacements, taken before they were cleared away during the construction of a roundabout. Remains (mostly hut bases) of the associated accommodation camp extended in an arc from about NS 3991 7694 to about NS 4405 7705, but they were later cleared to make way for a manufacturing plant (opened in 2012); see LinkExternal link for a map of the WWII remains that were visible when I visited.
