Teanacoil Sawmill
Officially known as "Lovat No. 1, Teanacoil", this was a logging camp for the Canadian Forestry Corps in World War II. The Canadian Forestry Corps had camps across the Highlands of Scotland during the war, with several others in the Kiltarlity and Beauly area.
Following the end of the war, Teanacoil was passed to the Polish Resettlement Corps, and was locally known as the "Poles' Camp".
