NMRS Report: (25/10/2004)
NC96NE 87.06 99991 66128, 99725 66018 and 99987 65808

Three areas of huts at Upper Dounreay Smallholdings all visible on a postwar RAF vertical air photograph (106G/Scot/UK133, 3171, flown 30 June 1946). The huts are mainly of the Nissen type apart from one or two larger flat roofed buildings which are possibly Mess huts. One area of huts centred at NC 99923 66045 had already been removed in 1946 as their location is only visible as hut bases.
A vertical air photograph taken in 1977 (OS/77/122, 168, 1977) shows that all huts in these three areas had been removed and only hut bases survived.
