Full Description

An extant nissen-like hut, situated on the edge of the present sawmill, with a brick base and corrugated asbestos roof was noted by ARCH's Evanton Wartime Remains project in 2013. Originally, it was probably wartime accommodation, although there is no indication of use on wartime plans. Joe Duncan and his family lived in it from 1959 to the early 1960s, and then moved to a house in the former married quarters. Contributor: Alan Kinghorn. <1>
