Fort George
Title: Fort George
Description: Fort George is one of the largest artillery fortifications in Europe. Built on a peninsula near Inverness and completed in 1769 it housed King George II's army and was designed to keep down any Scottish rebellion. It is still an army barracks and offers the visitor a unique view into the design of 18th century army buildings and the life of the soldier as it has hardly been altered since the day it was built. Owned by Historic Scotland.
Date: July 1988
