Fort George

Fort George is one of the most outstanding fortifications in Europe. It was built in the wake of the Battle of Culloden (1746) as an impregnable base for King George II’s army. It took 21 years to complete, by which time the Jacobite threat had been largely extinguished.

The imposing fort was designed by General William Skinner and built by the Adam family of architects. Today, it still serves the needs of the modern British Army.

Not a location currently used for Outlander and may not be part of the story. It is part of the greater Jacobite / post Culloden story. Looking at the fort it is hard to believe that it was build over 250 years ago.

 

There is a museum to the Scottish Regiments including the Lovat Scouts.
