Ganavan Signal Station was established by the Royal Navy on the high ground to the south of Ganavan during World War II. The lookout post was established at the top of a two storey structure, and approaching vessels would have been challenged by observers stationed in the post, being required to identify themselves before being allowed to proceed on to Oban Bay. Since being abandoned after the war, the station has been converted into a private residence.

The site is also described as a Port War Signal Station (PWSS) which would have guarded the approach and identified shipping coming and going through the channel.

The area was also the site of a Royal Navy Flying Boat Maintenance Unit, and an anti-submarine indicator loop.
