Ruthven Barracks

Ruthven Barracks was built after the failed Jacobite uprising of 1715 to maintain law and order. A 300-strong Jacobite attack failed to take the barracks in 1745, but a more heavily-armed attack the next year forced the barracks’ surrender. The Jacobites rallied at Ruthven Barracks after their defeat at Culloden before conceding. (6 miles from Crubenbeg; 15 minutes by car)
