    Wow! One could really feel the atmosphere here. The sun was setting and we were the only people there. Very atmospheric!  more »

    This is a beautiful location with safe paths and well maintained roofless buildings with clear signage detailing the turbulent history of the prominent site. Great views.  more »

    The barracks are located in a very picturesque place. The building itself is interesting enough, especially if you know a little history of Scotland and the reason for the preservation of the monument.

  • A great ruin. Very atmospheric. Enjoyed researching the history of the place.
  • Atmospheric, stunning views across the valley to the Cairngorms. An important site, particularly for those interested in the Jacobite uprisings.
  • Beautiful historic monument with great view over the surrounding landscape
  • Nice view of barraks with interesting history
  • Really interesting, from an interesting period in history. But there's not all that much to engage with once you've looked at the buildings.
