The Clyde & Forth
AGM & Conference
This handbook has been compiled for the members of the Fortress Study Group attending the AGM and Conference in 2015. It includes visits to the fortifications around both the Firth of Clyde and the Firth of Forth.
The handbook is not a definitive guide to these fortifications, but is intended to be a practical tool to take on site, with a limited amount of information to assist the understanding of the background to the structures and interpretation of what is visible on the ground.
All content has been drawn from published sources or personal observation and is believed to be in the public domain. Photographs, etc are generally the organiser’s
own except where indicated. Thanks go to Canmore RCHAMS, John Guy & Jeff Dorman (Toward Battery), Norman Clark, and the Wikipedia and Secret Scotland websites; and to Alastair Fyfe for checking the text. The editor apologises in advance for any mistakes or inadvertent breach of copyright.
