Balemartine opened in 1972 with 7 volunteers when Cornaigmore closed.
1993 Received Sabre Centurion BA sets. These are kept on the Scarnish Appliance.

By 18/7/2012 this Unit has been disbanded, I'm trying to find out the date this happened. The unit seems to have become non operational about 2011 when the two units combined and Balemartine's hut was moved to Scarnish beside the station there.
