Boddam Refurbishment Project

March 2, 2023

Highland RFCA’s original Boddam Refurbishment Project has been completed.

Improvements to buildings at the 2nd Battalion The Highlanders ACF Cadet Training Centre, near Peterhead in Aberdeenshire, got under way on 30 May 2022.

The works consisted of building a Tube Firing Range, a Parade Square and refurbishing the old Shetland Accommodation Block into an IT Suite and classroom space.

The four-tube firing range.
The new parade square.

The principal contractor was Morrison Construction. 

Works are now well under way on the construction of a new drill hall.

The £1.6 million upgrade enables the more than 300 cadets and 80+ adult volunteers from the Battalion to train and learn in the best possible conditions.

The new Ken Masson Learning Suite will be available for use for the upcoming Company Weekends this month, and during Annual Camp in the summer where Junior Cadets will undertake a range of activities over a two-week period in July.
