Dropped in expecting a few exhibits but found full history. More recent items food for thought especially with pictures of those killed in action. Allow plenty of time as this deserves it. Included in Fory George entry fee.

Three floors of Highlander history following the disbanding of Scotland's clans by King George in the 1700's. Uniforms, military hardware and great depictions of the Highlander regiments are all organized beautifully.

Lovely fort with added museum of the highlanders regiment over the last 200 years. Lots of uniforms and weapons. Even little game for kids to play below some of the exhibits.

A free museum once you have paid and entered Fort George, this museum has a lovely and informative display of military "hardware" from the past. It is 3 floors of collections and worth visiting.
