Ruthven Barracks
Ruthven Barracks
The barracks were built after the Jacobite Uprisings in 1715 on the site of two previous castles. The barracks were finished in 1721
The barracks were designed to house 120 troops, split between two barrack blocks. The officers lived separately to the troops. The stables which stood slightly to the west of the barracks were built in 1734 to house 28 horses for dragoons. By this time the strategic importance had been enhanced by the building of military roads from Perth, Fort Augustus and Inverness that came together at Fort Ruthven.
