UK: discover the Ruthven barracks ruins in Scotland

The Ruthven barracks ruins, were built in the 1700’s on a hilltop in Scotland. They were built to discourage further rebellion after the Jacobite Rising of 1715. The ruins are very well preserved and the views from the mound are fantastic! You can wander around for a little bit and learn about the history of the site from the sign posts… A place that is definitely worth your time for half hour of your time if you are in the area. And.. the entrance is free of charge! There are also friendly highland white ponys in the area.
