Auchenreoch Starfish decoy
During the Second World War, so-called Starfish decoys were carefully designed to provide very convincing false targets for enemy bombers. See LinkExternal link (at Secret Scotland) for a full explanation; LinkExternal link (at the same site) for a detailed description (with many photos) of the particular site shown here; Link for my own article on the topic; LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view; and Link for nearby bomb craters, testimony to the decoy's effectiveness.
