Notes: Malcolm S. McCallum, extended circa 1923; Harriet Richardsonís Scottish Hospitals Survey of 1990 notes that a maternity wing was added in 1921, and the hospital was further extended in the 1950s to include a new maternity ward. However, the History of Highland Hospitals [accessed 12-MAY-2015] indicates that the hospital was opened in 1923, specifically by Cameron of Lochiel.
