Charles Hill Battery, Aberdour

Just west of Aberdour in Fife and close to the Braefoot Bay LNG Terminal is a small promontory where there are the ruins of a Second World War coastal battery. The concrete battery consisted of one twin 6-pounder gun emplacement, three fixed beam searchlight and Lyon light emplacements and an engine room.

The gun emplacement has now collapsed and the observation post has been demolished. The site was an army camp which was completed by the outbreak of the war in 1939 before conversion to a battery. The camp functioned as a central training centre for Coastal Defence Units on the Forth Islands.

The ruined buildings are now overgrown with brambles and gorse bushes and are covered in graffiti.
