The fuel storage facility has become a little more obvious following the extensive tree felling on the site. The course of the pipeline can be seen in the foreground on the far left, marked by the grey 'cage' surrounding the heaters. The pipeline then followed the track to the farm, crossing the burn and then off at an angle to the left to the second cage that can be seen in the middle distance. It then went straight up the hill to the main entrance, marked by the dead tree that can be seen between the two sections of woodland on the hillside.
The eastern entrance, which is narrower and was probably for ventilation, can be seen on the right of the photo on the hillside. The details can be seen more clearly in the 'Large' version.

This is what is known as clear cutting, the result of which is soil erosion, unless tree-planting is carried out.
