Scope and Content Fort George, a bastioned artillery fortress, was built by William Skinner between the years 1747 and 1769 to provide an impregnable fort following the '45 uprising. It is unique, and the most complete example of 18th century military architecture in the UK. It is a Scheduled Monument and listed. It contains a regimental chapel. During the First World War Fort George was the regimental depot of the Seaforth Highlanders. The Fort remained the depot until the amalgamation of the Seaforths with the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders in 1916, to form the Queen's Own Highlanders, who continued to occupy the fort. Top left is a jetty that served the ferry across to Ardersier. Title and Scope & Content contributed by North of Scotland Archaeological Society (2021).
