Full Description

NH66NW 90 629 666
Stone pier (AP) - stable condition.
CFA/MORA Coastal Assessment Survey 1998. <1>

Some metal pickets on this pier (at NH 6298 6660) were noted by ARCH's Evanton Wartime Remains project in 2013. Several people recalled that these metal pickets were used to anchor tents and hangars. The four surviving on the shore were later used to anchor a wild fowlers hide but they are a heavy duty type that could tie down a plane. Reported at Evanton Wartime Remains Open Day. <2>
