22. Fort George, Inverness. (NH 762 567)

Built to suppress the natives after the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion, Fort George took 21 years to complete and at a cost of £92,673 (comparable to £1 billion today). It is owned by Historic Scotland but manned by soldiers of the Queen's Own Highlanders, whose headquarters are at the nearby Cameron barracks. The Cameron Barracks was built in 1877, 130 years after Fort George.

Fort George is also the location of an Army Training Estate exercise area. The army carries out "march and shoot" operations in the hills and links land surrounding the Fort and also carries out echelon training in a nearby wooded area.
