World War One Audit of Surviving Remains (2 August 2013)

The main dockside element of the base occupies an area about 500m by 200m centred on NH 711 685. A First World War map (in a private collection) shows large buildings served by an internal railway system connected by a branch line from the Highland Railway beside Invergordon Station. The dockyard includes the east and west piers and subsidiary jetties and a range of buildings, workshops, stores and offices. At least one of these buildings survive (see NH76NW 27) which was the former machine shop.
