Northfield magazine lies about two miles to the north of Invergordon, and was an ammunition store constructed during World War II. The magazine lies within a wooded area approximately half a mile north of the A9 road.
The installation is reported to comprise of three individual magazine buildings, one of which survives in near original condition, while the others have been opened up and reused for storage. A number of original buildings remain on the site, include the guardhouse at the entrance, and an engine room. The magazine may have been connected with the deep water port which the Royal Navy established at Invergordon, where the fleet also had extensive bunkering, or refuelling facilities, as serviced by the Inchindown Fuel Depot.
