Full Description

Three cottages were noted by ARCH's Evanton Wartime Remains project in 2013. Two date to before the war. The westernmost cottage (no. 1 Newton Road) was originally two timber huts side by side, built by the military for the guards looking after the guardpost. After the war it was merged into one and covered in mesh and harled. The other cottages were used by the Dunnetts, Newton Farm, and were not taken over by the military.
