Fabulous, huge site where you can truly appreciate the government's response to the Jacobite rebellion. I wouldn't fancy storming this beast I can tell you! It's a real step back in time with all the buildings complete as they were built in the 18th century. When we went there was the event " Celebration of the Centuries" and watched re enactors recreate everything from Romans though to Napoleonic to World War Two armies. Then in another section, a whole big band with dancing for WW2! Oh, and a Spitfire thrown in for good measure,
Could have done with more loos for the number of visitors, and the cafes couldn't quite cope with the numbers, but nonetheless, very good indeed.
As for the museum, this is excellent - very much so. My jaw dropped to Hitler's dispatch box and a bit of his desk, and the Victoria crosses in the medal room. Don't miss out here, superb museum to visit, if a little too warm for summer.
Very good indeed.
