Full Description

Part of Fort George training area. Several rifle ranges with firing points and target areas. Still in use by the Army. Two sections of concrete wall that could be sections of practice Atlantic Wall can be found on the east side of the range. <1>
A M Fox, Highland Council, 14.11.01.

The location and layout of the firing ranges has changed since they were first mapped, in 1870 but they seem to have been in continuous use until the present day. They would certainly have been used during the First World War.
