Balmedie Bunker

Old world war II bunker in the snow at Balmedie beach

This is an old World War II bunker, situated in Balmedie beach in Aberdeenshire. These were in place I believe to protect a radar station s and used to sit at the top of the dunes, but with the years they have moved due to the sand movements.

The beach used to be used to defuse or blow up unexploded Luftwaffe bombs that were launched during air raids in the area.

For more information on Balmedie beach you can visit VisitScotland.
