Note (9 February 2015)

Stobs castle and stable block were in military use during the First World War. Pictures from an album held in RCAHMS archives, shows a number of wooden building on the N side of the stables in use by the army, possibly as a military camp for the guards of the internee and PoW camps. It is possible that the stables would have been used for accommodation of men, stores and stabling of horses.
