Pillbox: EDoB ID: S0013019

A WWII pillbox overlooks the harbour at Banff having two embrasures facing towards the south breakwater. It's reasonably well disguised, having been built into the retaining wall of an embankment. Its entrance was probably in the wall to the right, now sealed up with stone blocks.
