Fort George is thought to be one of the best fortified military defenses in Europe. The Battle of Culloden was the final confrontation of the Jacobite rising in 1745. On the 16th April 1746, the Jacobite Army was defeated by the British Government forces on Drumossie Moor. It was the last pitched battle fought on British soil. George 2nd built Fort George in 1746, in the hopes of putting an end to Jacobite unrest. The site provides an interesting view into the life of a soldier in the 18th Century.
