Previously WW1 Drill hall, now residential
World War One Audit of Surviving Remains, Osborne (2006), records a drill hall in Mary Street.

The front block is two-storeyed with half dormers, with a single-storey hall behind. The building had not been built by the time of the 2nd edition OS 1:2500 map. The building has now been converted to housing.

In 1914 the hall was the drill station for "A" Squadron, 1st Lovat's Scouts and base for "E" Company, 4th battalion Cameron Highlanders.

Information from HS/RCAHMS World War One Audit Project (GJB) 19 July 2013.

The single-storey hall is now a row of small houses.
