These two Nissen huts are described as having been used to transfer ammunition from the railway line to vehicles presumably to be shipped up Loch Ness but it is not known for what purpose of where it was taken. There was a loop at the front for vehicles to drive to the front of the huts and then back onto the road. It might have been classed as a RNAD.

these are possibly piles of sleepers, the line having been closed in 1946 and lifted shortly thereafter

The hiding place of the Zygon's ship in the 4th Doctor's story; The Terror of the Zygons. It gave us at least one explanation about the Loch Ness Monster!

Two Nissen huts can be seen by the railway near the centre of the image. These might have been a RNAD.
