This is a coastal battery on the north side of the Firth of Forth, on the Fife Coastal Path. More details can be found in the Canmore Site Record for Kincraig Battery.

Today there are two transmitter masts at the site.

On the opposite shore of the Firth of Forth, there was the Fidra battery, which unlike the Kincraig battery was not equipped with radar.

Beat me to it, penance. ;) Some great remains there. Love the C.A.S.L.E...it's very similar to the one just down the road from me.
Cheers RedDave. :)
