Lovely fort with added museum of the highlanders regiment over the last 200 years. Lots of uniforms and weapons. Even little game for kids to play below some of the exhibits.

A free museum once you have paid and entered Fort George, this museum has a lovely and informative display of military "hardware" from the past. It is 3 floors of collections and worth visiting.
