Garvamore Barracks - Invernessshire

Garvamore Barracks is a Category A Listed building on the military road over the Corrieyairick Pass to Fort Augustus. It is essentially a tacksman’s house for the Duke of Gordon’s Estate, constructed around 1740 in the vernacular style using traditional building materials. The buildings also served as a staging post - or ‘King’s House’ (inn) - between Fort Augustus and Ruthven Barracks for troops and travellers along General Wade's Kings Highway. It was de-scheduled in 1997.
