£1.6m Boddam redevelopment completed

May 4, 2023

The redevelopment of the Cadet Training Centre at Boddam (Phases 1 and 2) has been successfully completed with the £1.6 million project handed over to Highland RFCA and, in turn, 2nd Battalion The Highlanders ACF.

The second phase saw the creation of a new drill hall and stores provision (pictured above).

That phase of the Highland RFCA Estates team’s development followed the earlier completion of works on the site to build a Tube Firing Range, a Parade Square, and refurbish the old Shetland Accommodation Block into an IT Suite and classroom space. Read more about those improvements HERE.

All the work to buildings at the 2 Highlanders CTC, near Peterhead in Aberdeenshire, will enable the more than 300 cadets and 80+ adult volunteers from the Battalion to train and learn in the best possible conditions. The Battalion thanked Highland RFCA for its support in delivering a fantastic asset.

The project was officially handed over by principal contractor Morrison Construction Site Manager Gary Mennie on April 21.
