Fort George hosts Celebration of the Centuries event

Historic Scotland's award winning Celebration of the Centuries event returns to Fort George on Saturday and Sunday.

Set in one of the finest military fortifications in Europe, the event celebrates more than 2,000 years of history.

The Fort came to life as more than 250 performers depicted centuries of history from Picts and Romans, through Viking, Medieval, Renaissance, Reformation and Jacobite periods to World War I and II.

This year's event has special emphasis on the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of WWI.

The largest event in Historic Scotland's calendar sees Fort George play host to hundreds of historical re-enactors.
