AA Battery Caldarvan
A World War II anti-aircraft battery was sited to the north east of Balloch. Site number N8. Part of the Clyde AA Defences, the site was known as Caldarvan, or Loch End.
The battery was equipped with four emplacements, a command post, GL Radar mat with ramp, and an accommodation camp to the north. Visible in aerial photographs taken in 1948, the site lies south of Rosedale.
There are no surviving remains of the battery, which was demolished in the late 1980s, and is now grassed over, although hut bases from the accommodation camp have been reported in the area south of Rosedale.
