The trot back

After having walked along the beach to get to the monument, I decided to Reef it back.  Some interesting finds on that huge expanse.

A pole with handle and a float(?).

This float said it had buoyancy to 20kg:

These ruinss have intrigued me for ages!  Today I finally visited and took a peek.

The entrance (one assumes)

The building interior (bit draughty!)

There were lots of these too.  I don't know if they're walls, floors or rooves.

There are also these.  I think they might be foundations.

And then there's this pair of buildings: (EDIT: Angus informs me these were once home to an operations room during the RAF stay here)

And this is at our end: An Sruthan Ruadh

So that was the walk back.  A nice day had by myself and Madam Doglet who was in bed and fast asleep by 17:30.
