Following the 1746 defeat at Culloden, George II created the ultimate defence against further Jacobite attack. The result, Fort George, the mightiest artillery fortification in the UK, if not Europe.
Fort George is the only ancient monument in Scotland still functioning as intended – a working army barracks - but still welcoming visitors. A gift shop and café (seasonal) are among the attractions.
Historic Fort built by George II after the defeat of Bonnie Prince Charlie at the battle of Culloden in 1746.
Great place to visit when the weather is good. You might be lucky to see dolphins in the Moray Firth!
Built in the 1750's as a means to control the Highlands after the Jacobite Rising it's still in use today as a British Army base but is also home to museum detailing the life and stories of soldiers serving in the 1800's
Historic Fortress - still working today - near Inverness - just over an hour south of Embo
