Fortress Scotland and the Jacobites
This title, one of the Historic Scotland series, traces by means of surviving buildings and archaeological remains, the intense military activity in Scotland during the Jacobite era. It brings to life the men who formed part of the first standing army, and covers sites existing today together with the problems of preserving them. The authors examine the adaptation of the ancient royal castles, mighty new forts like Fort William and Fort George, smaller barracks at Ruthven, Inversnaid and elsewhere, Wade's and Caulfield's military roads.
