Fort George (Historic Scotland)
A vast site and one of the most outstanding artillery fortifications in Europe. It was planned in 1747 as a base for George II’s army and was completed in 1769.
Since then it has served as a barracks. It is virtually unaltered and presents a complete view of the defensive system of an 18th-century artillery fort.
The fort includes reconstruction of barrack rooms in different periods and the Seafield Collection - a display of muskets and pikes.
