See NS3977 : Structure associated with WWII gun emplacements for another view.

This part of the base of the building can be seen to be L-shaped, with the angle located about halfway up the right-hand edge of the photo; the steps (see the link just cited) are located at the far end of the L, which is also the edge of this wooded area. A very small part of the original brick wall of the building is visible nearby.

Out of shot, behind and to the right of the photographer's position, other parts of the base of the structure were visible, but those are covered in cow-trampled mud, and they are not very noticeable in photographs.
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.
