Beinn Hough Radar Station
Beinn Hough Radar Station was located on the summit of Beinn Hough, and was a World War II Chain Home Low (CHL) radar station.
Beinn Hough Radar Station comprised of a number of buildings, and a series of masts located both on, and around, the summit of the hill. Aerial photographs taken by the RAF during a survey in 1946 showed three of the buildings still standing on the hillside, together with further structures near the summit.
One small building is known to survive on the site, with a number of concrete bases still evident nearby.
According to RCAHMS records, there are buildings at NL 9486 4635, NL 9444 4694, NL 9435 4648 and NL 9452 4643, with the radar masts centred at NL 9435 4675. The transmitter/receiver block is reported to be at NL 9444 4694. Two buildings (NL94NW 8.02) are depicted on the current OS 1:10000 map (1976) at NL 9435 4648 and NL 9452 4643, and were noted to be visible on RAF aerial photographs taken in April 1946 - suggested to be the transmitter and receiver blocks. A remote reserve is suggested at NL 9444 4294. The photographs showed at least three masts in the area between the buildings. Between the two groups of buildings, the vertical air photographs show a series of masts, three of which were still standing in 1946.
