In which town is Andrew and Isobel’s Youth Club?
An Gearastan is the Gaelic for Fort William. An Gearastan is actually a shortened form of Gearastan Inbhir Lòchaidh, which translates as The Garrison of Inverlochy.
Fort William was originally named Inverlochy, but when the fort was enlarged in the 19th century it adopted the name of Fort William. Fort William was named after King William of Orange in 1690 and Fort William became a crucial base in efforts to contain the Clans who wanted to overthrow King William’s Hanoverian monarchy.
