The site as visited is at a farm close to Gosford House a Large Stately Home. A large part of the site has recently been cleared and a new barn built and comparing the Google Earth Views to the drone images it appears several buildings and bases have been removed.
There are five brick buildings at the site two have an appearance close to Latrines / Wash House Guard Room. The other buildings are large and were possibly the site theatre or cook house. The whole site is on the Firth of Forth the site of which is only blocked by trees.
