Immediately to the south of Barrack 3 are the remnants of the stone footings of at least two buildings. They are on the same alignment as the barrack, suggesting that they are contemporary. However, no equivalent remains are visible alongside the other barracks. There is a faint indication of a fireplace at the east end of the western building.
