Mouth of Abbey Burn on Linkim Shore
Mouth of Abbey Burn on Linkim Shore
The 1899 1:2,500 OS map shows a rifle range along Linkim Shore with a small block labelled 'targets' close to the location of the small building shown to the right of the burn. Metal plates, described as target boards, can also be seen higher up the cliff slope and may have been moved from the installation.

A recent survey of coastal archaeology by SCAPE assigns the structure whose front is "pockmarked with small holes" to a later date, "... built as an ammunition store/firing range during WWII".

The cliff on the right is shown as Bennison's Brae NT9265 : Cliff-top wall at Bennison's Brae, originally named as Dennison's Brae by the Ordnance Survey.
