This is an excellent museum to visit. Near to Inverness, it had been on my "to-do" list for some time. It was very reasonably priced and the visit was enhanced by an audio tour. It was very interesting, and we spent 5 hours wandering around,...More
Visited here with friends and easily spent 4 hours touring the fort. There is an excellent museum spread over 3 floors which is worth a visit on it's own. Very good experience visiting a working army base which also offers a café for light snacks.
