Boddam drill hall progress

March 28, 2023

Work to create a new drill hall and stores provision at the Boddam Cadet Training Centre is well under way.

The latest phase of the Highland RFCA Estates team’s development follows the recent completion of £1.6 million 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.

Making the building wind and watertight was a priority.

All the improvements to buildings at the 2nd Battalion The Highlanders ACF 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 new IT Suite was used for the recent Company Weekends, and will be well-used during Annual Camp in the summer with Junior Cadets undertaking a range of activities over a two-week period in July.

The interior (above and below) is taking shape.
