Located in forestry are two small iron wheels connected by an iron axle. They would have originated from a Newfoundland Overseas Forestry Unit cart that would have run on a small-gauge railway. The Unit was active in Strathmashie Forest during World War 2 and the remains were found during a detailed archaeological survey of Strathmashie Community Forest near Laggan, Highland. The survey was carried out to assess the evidence for past human use and to ascertain whether there was enough archaeology to develop a heritage trail in the forest.
