According to the Ross-shire Journal (dated 24 February 1911) a fine large drill Hall was designed by Messrs Maitland, architects, for the County Territorial Association. The building was reported as going to be half-timbered and faced with light coloured cement with a roof of terra-cotta coloured rubberoid.
