Tournaig Water Tower and Balloon Station

The balloon station for the Loch Ewe defences is situated to the NW of Tournaig and 200m NW of the heavy anti-aircraft battery (NG88SE 26), between the shore and the road. Several buildings survive, including the water tower (NG 8755 8391), several hut bases and a concrete pier. A modern farm shed has been built on the base of the original building at the pier. Constructing the new upper part and roof on the foundations of the old has altered this building. The building is now in use as a barn.
