Activities

Project (March 2013 - September 2013)

A project to characterise the quantity and quality of the Scottish resource of known surviving remains of the First World War. Carried out in partnership between Historic Scotland and RCAHMS.

Note (4 October 2013)

The date of construction of the existing building is unclear. The buildings are similar but do not match the depiction on the 4th epoch OS maps and therefore may date to the post First World War..

Information from RCAHMS (AKK) 4 October 2013.
