The location of the barracks gives a great view of the surrounding area. Although you walk around on your own, no centre, the information boards have all the info you need.

the Ruthven Barracks ruins have good information plaques and interesting historical tidbits - the officers and the men have separate latrines ! Scotland has a bloody history of warfare.
