Ruthven Barracks
Ruthven Barracks
Ruthven Barracks, intended to house troops sent to pacify the Highlands following the Jacobite risings of 1715 and 1719, were built in 1721 on the site of the former castle of Ruthven. In 1746, however, after the Battle of Culloden, surviving supporters of Bonnie Prince Charlie gathered here, only to be told that the Jacobite cause was lost and that they should disperse and look to their own safety. The barracks were blown up and never rebuilt. In the background are the partly snow-covered slopes of the western Cairngorms above Glen Feshie. The foreground isn't normally under water; this is the flood plain of the River Spey, and the river has overflowed its usual channel.
