A large harled concrete and steel building on the N side of the A9 at the junction with a minor road to Rhicullen. The interior is now empty, but several engine mounting beds and inspection pits survive. This was once the pumping station for an oil pipeline from underground oil tanks to the N to Invergordon Naval Base.
