Bernera Barracks *
Region: Isle of Skye & Kyle of Lochalsh
Bernera Barracks was built to house a garrison of up to 200 soldiers and is strategically located to control the crossing at Kylerhea. It was built during the early 1700’s after the battle of Glen Shiel by the Hanovarian Government to suppress the Jacobites.
In the 1990's, plans were lodged to renovate the buildings but at present they remain in a somewhat dangerous condition and are now fenced off for the safety of the public.
