Mongonaut’s response:

This is no help I imagine but the nearby partially submered double circle of Er Llanic is a bird sanctuary/reserve and cannot be visited, though can be passed by boat apparently. Maybe this is the reason for no pics

Also (though unlikely looking at pic) Renfrew got Ile Longue and Barnenez mixed up?

Also, the Ile Longue island (which is an island) to the West of Er Llanic is different to the Submarine base (which is a tongue of land/peninsula near Finnestere). Ile Longue just means 'Long Island' is it possible could be elsewhere?

Google Maps Ile Longue...

Not much help, but may clear up confusion with location
