NH67SE 57.01 NH 69324 74056 Structure

The Royal Navy underground oil tanks to supply Invergordon are situated upslope from Inchindown farmsteading. There are two stone and concrete built entrances in the conifer plantation with the tanks tunnelled into the hillside. A pipeline was built from here to the Invergordon base and elements of this can still be traced to Tomich (NH67SE 53), and beyond to the oil tanks at Invergordon.
