Full Description

NMRS Report: (05/10/2004)
NC96NE 87.04 Centred 99952 67205

Area shown as 'Camp site' (disused) on OS 1:10000 scale map (1989) and 1:10560 scale map (1969). A postwar RAF vertical air photograph (106G/Scot/UK133, 3171, flown 30 June 1946) shows that this area was probably utilsed for general mess, showers and stores. Seven large Nissen huts and several other smaller versions along with other types are visible on the air photograph. The depiction on the current OS digital 1:2500 scale map would suggest that at least six buildings survive in this area.
