    This is the Fort of S. Jorge Oitavos.
    It was built in 1642 and is located in Guincho.
    1999 its recovery started and in 2001 it was re opened as a museum.
    The uniforms are repros but they give you an idea of the uniform types used in the period.

    Default Inveraray Castle: home to the Duke of Argyll

    what an excellent thread!! they are all great!!

    castles you say?? we have a few and i have been in them all, lets start with Inveraray !

    Inveraray Castle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    town also also have a very nice ( not at the time i imagine ) old Jail which opened in 1820

    Inveraray Jail - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    will wait to see if any other Scottish members add any, Edinburgh for example is a castle / fortress and is a good more stratigraphic placed like some others in this thread

    ideal Nuno, i just love this type of History!
