Bernera Barracks near Glenelg
Bernera Barracks near Glenelg
Following the Battle of Glen Shiel in 1719, and other uprisings associated with the Jacobite Rebellions, military roads were constructed across the Highlands (many attribute to General Wade, though only some of these correctly) and Hanoverian government troops were stationed at strategic locations. This ruin is a reminder that at one time our own country was as unstable as any of today's violent hotspots!
