Full Description

A pump house was noted by ARCH's Evanton Wartime Remains project in 2013. A house with reservoir located above Novar House was reported to be the water supply to the camp, although a valve house on Glen Glass Road was also reputed to be the camp water supply from Assynt (see ARCH no 77). It may be that this was used to supply the B camp expansion, or even just the new military buildings around Novar House. Contributor: Phil Glover. <1>
