Full Description

WWII military buildings in the Invergordon Dockyard area.

The buildings were investigated in 2015 as part of the ARCH project 'Invergordon in World War I'. During WWI land was reclaimed on the shore, by filling in from approximately the Central pier to Oakes Villa Stores. Railway lines were constructed along the shore to the east for transporting infill material. A WWI aerial photo shows few buildings in this area during WWI. However, by WWII there are a number within the area, as shown by a wartime plan in private collection and aerial photos. The infill area was for the most part taken over by the M.O.D., with a line running south from Shore Road. These small buildings are depicted on a WWII plan in private possession at the eastern edge of the M.O.D. area, just south of the railway lines, and alongside a long building oriented north-south which was the D.O.E. offices. The small, northenmost, building can just be made out on a 1947 aerial photo. <1>
