Full Description

Information from participant in Black Isle Heritage Memories Project. It is suggested that this was a Polish Camp and later a 242 (Oban Regiment) battery in WWII. <1>

No war time aerial photographic cover is available for this area to try and independently verify this. The bowling green presumably destroyed any buildings and/or features associated with the camp in this area. <2>
