General view of Bernera Barracks

A general view of the ruins of Bernera Barracks, in Glenelg, Skye and Lochalsh. One of the four strategic barracks built in the aftermath of the Jacobite uprising of 1715 it bears a striking resemblance to the better preserved site at Ruthven. Construction was finished in 1723 and the fort was used for military purposes up until the 1790s, after which it was used as a shelter for those displaced during the Highland Clearances. It is now an A grade listed building.
