Reenactent Redcoat Soldier, Fort George, Scotland

This morning, we departed our lodgings in Inverness and drove for about 30 minutes eastward to visit Fort George, a combined active military base and visitor attraction. This is an artillery fortress dating from 1769 with little structural change over past 250 years. The site is protected by one mile of walls facing the Moray Firth.  The fort was built to deter Jacobite uprisings after the Battle of Culloden in 1746.
