Reviewed 9 May 2014

It was free but would have paid if staffed & there was leaflets/brochures to obtain but there was none.

“Fascinating view into the past”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

This is an unstaffed site with free entry but with good interpretation. Not for the unfit! The walk from the small car park (on the other side of the road) is quite a climb, but worthwhile.

“Lovely Place to Visit - the view is awesome”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We stopped off here on way to Aviemore, and we had a picnic lunch on the benches outside by the road. The view was awesome. The Barracks are a little bit of history and would recommend up close and personal visit to this historic site.

“Atmospheric”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

We visited on a wet and miserable day and it brought home what daily life must have been like for those garrisoned here!
