Fort George (Scotland) ... only ancient monument in Scotland still functioning as intended – a working army barracks - but still welcoming visitors. A gift shop and café (seasonal) are among the attractions. The Regimental Museum of the Queen’s Own Highlanders is found at the property, while dolphins can often be seen from the ramparts. There is also a summer events programme.

Just as a point of interest for you all, Fort George is a working military garrison as well as a monument and museum.
