About Fort George

Fort George is an artillery fortification in Inverness, Scotland and a great castle. First created in 1746 after the defeat at Culloden of Bonnie Prince Charlie. In order to create a defence against further attacks, Fort George was built. It took 22 years to complete, but by the time it had finished, the threat was no longer there. However, it still served the British army for an impressive 250 years since.

With entire garrison buildings, artillery defences with cannons, and an incredible collection of arms, such as bayoneted muskets, pikes, swords and ammunition pouches. You'll be sucked into learning about historic Scotland in the 18th-century military!
