This is an end-on view of the uppermost of the three platforms making up the remains. The other two are lower, and are just to its left (west). For a view from beside the lowest platform, see NS2471 : Remains of a WWII searchlight battery.

I happened to notice these bases from the adjacent path, and thought they looked like remains from the Second World War. Later, from the Canmore link given in the end-note, I learned that they are the remains of a wartime searchlight battery.

See LinkExternal link at Canmore for detailed information. The remains are in the form of three overgrown concrete platforms on a slope, set one above the other like terraces. They can be seen beside a path that is now part of Shielhill Glen Nature Trail.
