Is that an Oerlikon 20 mm cannon still on its pedestal? There looks to be enough left to rebuild it which I assume was protected to some extent by the snow and ice. Remarkable remains though.

It's not an RAF radar station, but a Royal Navy one, known as Saebol.. It had Type 273 and Type 277 radars.
