Additional infoThis is on the map as Rannoch Barracks. The Barracks are marked as somewhat distinct from ‘Georges Town’ on Stobie’s map.
Robertson, in ‘Memories of Rannoch’ Transactions, 1980 51, 314 mentions these barracks but does not offer a Gaelic name for them, which he would have done had he known it.
