Ruthven Barracks

Completed in 1721 they were built to police the Highlands after the Jacobite rising of 1715. In 1745 Ruthven was successfully defended against a detatchment of Prince Charles Edward Stuart's army, but surrendered to his main force in the following year, when the barracks were burnt. Map location.
