Small hutted camp connected with the training of special operations personnell in the Second World War.

The camp is visible on vertical air photographs (CPE/UK/Scot 177, frames 4437-4439, flown 7 Ocotber 1946), which show a group of at least 25 mainly Nissen huts in an area to the SW of the Lodge.

The area is now occupied by buildings connected to the Loch Eil Outward Bound school.
