Listing Type : Coastal Battery
Location : Scotland

Torry Battery was built between 1860 and 1860, and was initially armed with:

  • Three 10-inch RML guns
  • Six 68-pdr SB guns

The plan show in the images is from an on site council notice board and shows the battery in 1865.

In 1906, after a period of redundancy, the battery was rearmed with two 6-inch BL Mark VII guns.  Nothing can presently be seen of the 6-inch BL battery, as this has now been back-filled and buried.  It stood on the south side of the battery.

Two 10-inch RML and one 68-pdr emplacements survive.

Beach Battery was built about the same time on the northern side of the River Dee.
