A World War II anti-aircraft battery was sited near Sandbank, Dunoon. Site number AN7. Part of the .

The battery was equipped with four emplacements, a command centre, GL Radar mat and ramp, and an accommodation camp to the north. Records indicate the battery was unarmed from 1942 to 1945. Aerial photographs taken by the RAF in 1946 showed the battery, together with a Mk I radar set, and the small accommodation camp with some six Nissen huts in place.

Development of the area and its surroundings means there are no surviving remains of the battery. The area of the accommodation camp has been occupied by the Cowal Cemetery, while that of the emplacements to the south has become a Travellers' site.
