Moray Firth Type 24 fly over

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.

Defence Structures and sites of all types both above and below ground can be very dangerous. Serious injury or even death can arise from unauthorised entry into such sites and structures. Join a responsible club, group or society who can arrange official visits. The Pillbox Study Group accepts no responsibility for any damages or injuries caused by ignoring this advice. The PSG does not encourage members to undertake the ad hoc clearance of vegetation from pillboxes, as it can expose them to physical damage and inappropriate use, it may also contravene a variety of statutory regulations including, listed buildings and SSSI designations. Vegetation clearance should only ever be undertaken as part of a formal arrangement, having sought and obtained permission from the land owner and other necessary authorities. Damaging a listed or scheduled monument can be considered as a Heritage Crime.
