I wonder how you reached a value for the height, but the width, according to a 27.9 cm/pixel resolution, is something like 2.5 metres (8 feet 4 inches), not the 9 metres (30 feet) you got.
Using the map-projected image (that has possible mis-alignments corrected and is rotated so north is to the top of the image) we can see that the "crop" (that is not a crop but the join line between the strips that make up the image) was corrected, so we can see the "tower".
And if my interpretation of the direction of the light is correct, your idea of that direction is wrong, as I show in the following image, that I have rotated to align it with your image (why did you rotate the image?)
I know what you mean, I have the same problem, sometimes.

I rotatated the image because for me, when the light is coming from the northern area it doesnt make everything look upsidedown, to me anyway.
My measurements are a guess, yours are more on point I'm sure. If it is a stone structure, its very intriguing.
Oh and BTW, I came up with my light direction by looking at other stones and their shadows (that were outside of this cropped image)...I'm pretty sure it was acurate.
