Fort George

In light of updated Scottish Government advice regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have taken the decision to close public access to our staffed properties and offices until further notice.

You can explorer an enormous military base protected by almost 1.6KM (1 mile) of massive walls. You can gain insight into life as a Redcoat in a garrison fortress built in 1748-69 that has barely changed in 250 years of active service.
You could also join one of our Dolphin Watches, scouring the Moray Firth for its resident population of bottlenose dolphins.

There is much for visitors to see including defences bristling with cannon, historic barrack rooms, a superb collection of weapons and the peaceful Regimental Chapel that holds many old colours or battle flags.

The recently refurbished Highlander’s museum tells the stories of three of the four regiments that came together to make up the Highlanders Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland.
