The highlander museum is amazing. It's situated in army grounds that are still in use. It's very informative giving one an amazing inside of the tradition of Highlanders in arms. You can have a walk around the walls as well and if you are lucky get the spot some dolphins..!!!

The history in here is amazing. I however found that after the 1st floor that it seemed to be a repeat of the first but in a different year. If you are an army type of person you will love it.

I decided to visit Fort George, because my father was in the Seaforth Highlanders and I was very interested in the place where he was billeted . I was taking up some of my fathers memorabilia . It was a very interesting visit a place steeped in history especially if you have an Army connection. I would definitely go back as this a large part of my fathers life and my families. The senery is beautiful, I stayed in a lovely B & B and walked along the coast just wished I could have gone further. Took lovely photos, sorry I can't post them

We used our Explorers Pass to get in for free. That pass is well worth it of you plan to hit 3 or more sites on the Historic Scotland list. This museum within Fort George is small but a valuable addition to the fort that shares a great deal of the history of Scotland.
