Ruthven Barracks outside Kingussie in the upper Spey Valley in the Heart of the Scottish Highlands.

Ruthven Barracks was built by the Hanoverian troops in 1719. It was built as a defence for the area after the Jacobean rising in 1715.

The building now lies as a ruin after the roof was burned when the barracks were captured by the Jacobean army in 1746, although the main areas, used as stables and as a residential block are still intact.

    The beautiful sky and green surroundings make this a wonderful image, in spite of the tragic
    story that the ruins have to tell. Very atmospheric “painting” !!!
