Inverness Citadel

All that remains of the Inverness Citadel is a rubble clock-tower in an industrial estate on Cromwell Road, a half-mile (1 km) north of the city centre. The Citadel was one of several built in Scotland by the invading army of Oliver Cromwell to consolidate their control over the country. The fortress was constructed using stone that came from the ruins of Beauly Priory and Kinloss Abbey, but was demolished following the Restoration in 1660.
