Type 24  pillbox and Anti Tank Cubes, Innes Links, Kingston On Spey. NJ 31688 66345

This is a fascinating area for the WWII defence enthusiast. If you look on an ordnance survey map at the coast here you’ll see what looks like a line of Pylons running sor approximately 3 miles along the coast – it’s not pylons – it’s a line of AT cubes with a pillbox every 3rd of a mile. These alternate between a rectangular pillbox with no seaward facing loopholes and the same Type 24 machine gun pillboxes as at Roseisle. The ends of the line disappear under the pebbly beach at one end and straight into the sand dunes at the other.  They re-appear further to the west in the forest.
