In 1903, the Wick Volunteer Artillery Company bought the former Free Church, and converted it into a Drill Hall. First shown as a drill hall on the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey map. <1> <2>

The Dempster Street drill hall is a late Victorian chapel-like building, erected as a drill hall, with large upstairs windows to the hall. It is marked on the 2nd edition OS 1:2500 map. In 1914 the hall was base for "F" Company, 5th battalion Seaforth Highlanders. It is still in use as a drill hall, Army information centre and cadet centre.
