Just off the Occumster to Camster road near to Camster Lodge House. Nothing substantial remains, other than the basic outline shape of the foundations, with a piece of timber within the ground.

This patrol was fairly remote with regards to its OB location, but only 4 miles from Occumster which is on the South Caithness coast line and near to the A99 routes.

Halkirk for Scout Section specialist instruction and at times conducted at Langwell further south.

Usual issued euipment.

 More information is required to locate members of this patrol.
