Full Description

The site of a mainhill hangar was noted by ARCH's Evanton Wartime Remains project in 2013. A site known locally as ‘The Hangar Site’ had an Evanton Mainhill hangar (see MHG56128 or ARCH no. 48) put up in 1962. It was erected by Bill Jack, manager of Evanton Engineering, housing a machine shop. The ‘MacKenzie turnip cutters’ were manufactured in the hangar. Later the hangar was taken over by Motherwell Bridge, who ran various engineering projects, including building bridges worldwide. After Motherwell Bridge moved to Invergordon the hangar was used by Ronald Munro Ferguson who made plastic extrusion products. The hangar and the nearby showroom/garage were taken down around 10 years prior to this project. Contributors: Catriona Fraser, Alex Fraser, Alasdair Cameron. <1>
