I too used to live there, We only stayed maybe 6 months to a year when I was 3 or 4.... Am 31 now so quite a long time ago.
I remember a few things like learning to go my bike and cycling the Sgt Law roads with my mum, Also a red car that had white Coka-Cola or Starsky and Hutch stripes down the side..... I couldnt tell you what van we stayed in either...
I dont remember these bunkers, Would be an interesting wander tho

As you can see by my pictures the owner at the time didn't manage to demolish the structures & in fact broke 2 excavator mounted rock breakers in his attempts.
I would also very much like to know the location mentioned of the milnethird site if it is not this one.

I'm afraid the pics referred to aren't on line (but you can't have everything) although RCAHMS have referenced them, so they should be available, they always advertise a request for online users to visit their public search room where you can see the archive material, and even purchase copies of archive material. But, I've resisted the invitation so far.
There's actually an 'Images on-line' button (with a little camera icon) cunningly hidden on the page and not too apparent. If there are any images from the archive available on-line, this will take you to them, but not in this case.
Here's the corresponding Millthird page:
