RAF Radio Location Station, Esha Ness
RAF Radio Location Station, Esha Ness
This was a RAF wartime station for locating boats and aircraft by triangulation on their radio signals. The wall protected the base of a wooden tower, also hexagonal, inside the wall.

There is a similar structure at SO4325 : Summit of Garway Hill. See LinkExternal link for a picture of the wooden tower there.

(Thanks to a contact from Secret Scotland LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) for this information about the station.)
