World War One Audit of Surviving Remains (27 September 2013)

The military firing range, noted in a 1998 Coastal assessment Survey, lies immediately adjacent to the Dingwall drill hall/Territorial Army centre. It is likely that the range is of the same pre-First World War origin.

However the range shown on the 2nd edition of the OS 6-map (Ross-shire) was interrupted by the construction of the new drill hall and a new range was constructed further east. The N part of the original firing range continued in use.

Information from HS/RCAHMS World War One Audit Project (GJB) and (AKK) 27 September 2013.
