Claverhouse Training Centre
|Controlled by||United Kingdom|
On the outbreak of World War II in September 1939 the navy took over the Granton Hotel, close to Granton Harbour, and commissioned it as HMS Claverhouse for Reserve training. From April 1940 it was in use for Merchant Navy Defence Courses, and also served as the headquarters for the Motor Launches of the local Coastal Forces.
Today, the building is known as the "Claverhouse Training Centre", and is the HQ for E Squadron, 205 (Scottish) Field Hospital (Volunteers), No.17 (Granton) Platoon, Army Cadet Force, and the Edinburgh Trinity Sea Cadets.
