Torry Point Battery entrance
The Torry Battery is an artillery battery near Torry in Aberdeen, Scotland, which has overlooked the city's harbour since 1860. It was originally constructed for nine guns with a defensible barracks at the rear. In 1881 the battery mounted three 10-inch Smooth bore guns and five 68-Pounder Smooth bore guns. The battery was adapted for two 6-inch Breech Loading (BL) guns which were mounted by 1906. Both guns were operational during the First World War.
