World War One Audit of Surviving Remains (19 July 2013)

Osborne (2006) reports a drill hall built in Old Pier Lane in Broadford in 1914 and in use until 1937 when it was partly demolished and replaced by a modern hall in the main street. Its precise location is uncertain but a corrugated building on the west side of Old Pier Lane (Sraid na H-atha) may part of the drill hall.

In 1914 it was the base for "D" Company, 4th battalion Cameron Highlanders.

The architect was John Alistair Ross (1882-1955).
