Shapinsay Practice Battery has also be referred to as Holt of Ives and Fort Elenor.

The Practice Battery is a simple platform with a small barbette wall.  It is assumed that smoothbore guns would have been mounted here for training of the militia.  There is a small building, presumably for the storage of equipment.  There is also a partially buried small magazine.
