Bernera Barracks is located at Glenelg in the West Highlands of Scotland. The barracks were constructed between 1717 and 1723 as part of a campaign by the British government to subdue the local population which had risen up in arms in the Jacobite Rising of 1715, and which would do so again in 1745. The barracks were designed by Andrews Jelfe and John Lambertus Romer of the Board of Ordnance, or possibly their predecessor James Smith, and built by Sir Patrick Strachan. Some of the stone used in the construction was taken from a nearby broch. The Government troops who were garrisoned here during the Jacobite uprisings were also intended to control the crossing to Skye. The barracks (and indeed the broch) are now in ruins, a state which they appear to have entered by the close of the eighteenth century, shortly after the withdrawal of troops in 1797. The barracks is protected as a category A listed building, and as a scheduled monument.

I can not be a traitor, for I owe him no allegiance. He is not my Sovereign; he never received my homage; and whilst life is in this persecuted body, he never shall receive it. To the other points whereof I am accused, I freely confess them all. As Governor of my country I have been an enemy to its enemies; I have slain the English; I have mortally opposed the English King; I have stormed and taken the towns and castles which he unjustly claimed as his own. If I or my soldiers have plundered or done injury to the houses or ministers of religion, I repent me of my sin; but it is not of Edward of England I shall ask pardon. - William Wallace

Down at Mauchline visiting a very ill friend and on the return journey decided to have another look at the progress at the A-Frame at the Barony Colliery Pithead. This is the last remaining winding gear of its type left in the UK and is currently awaiting a decision on an upgrade to "A listed building status"
