     This light area could be the WWII decoy site. It roughly corresponds to the size and shape of the present day picnic area. No trace has been found of the decoy site or control bunker just a pillbox down the road towards Kinlochleven.

    Compare this image with the clearer vertical aerial shot taken 6 years earlier by the RAF, available on the RCAHMS NCAP website at http://bit.ly/PQsJBN.
