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

The First World War map of the Invergordon Naval Base (in a private collection) shows the presence of a housing estate of 126 cottages arranged along six streets. The clear implication of the map is that the houses were built for dockyard personnel (six houses for the dockyard’s officers are marked separately to the SW). The housing complex comprises uniform single-storey semi-detached cottages, with small porches, each with their own garden. The houses survive largely as built, although some have accumulated extensions, conservatories etc. The roads are now known as Golfview Terrace, Grosvenor Street, Cadboll Road, Elliot Road, Murray Road and Inglis Road.
