Archaeology Notes

NH87NE 34.03 85673 77030

A brick and concrete gas-decontamination centre is situated centrally within the camp at Loans of Tullich. Probably a type J for both wounded and unwounded men or women with two entrances at the NE end. Most of the internal divisions survive including the space for the boiler room. No painted signs were noted, but on the date of visit in poor light, it was not possible to see the wall spaces.

Visited by RCAHMS (DE, PM), January 1997.
