World War One Audit of Surviving Remains (17 July 2013)

The Sinclair Street drill hall was built before 1904 (when it appears on the 2nd edition OS 1:2500 map). The front block has two storeys with a central arched doorway with gable over, within which is a large three-lighted window to the hall. The building is now in use as commercial premises.

In 1914 it was the base for "E" Company, 5th battallion Seaforth Highlanders.
