NN 174 567 Three WW2 Pillboxes

J Harden and J Wordsworth 1996.

These are the NGR for the Pillbox type structures listed in Glencoe. There is nothing else anywhere around that area that could fit with the official description. They could easily have been erected during WW2 to give some shelter to anyone defending the pass. Shelter from the wind as much as bullets!!
