World War One Audit of Surviving Remains (12 September 2013)

he Cameron Barracks, Perth Road, Inverness, was a purpose-built infantry depot constructed between 1876 and 1884. The Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders moved into the complex on 1886. The barracks was built in the Scots Baronial style and comprises four two-storey blocks enclosing three sides of the parade ground. The north-west and west blocks each have twin conical drum towers linked by a balcony over the entrance. The NE block has a clock-tower.

The complex is the best-preserved 19th-century regimental depot surviving. Humorous articles in the regimental magazine suggest that the barrack drains were poorly planned and required frequent clearing. The complex is still in military use.
