Ruthven Barracks in the Spey Valley is one of several built by the British after the 1715 Jacobite Rising with the intent of keeping the rebelious Highlanders under control. On the day after the Battle of Culloden, about 3,000 Jacobite survivors gathered here to continue the fight. However, when they arrived, they found a message from Bonnie Prince Charlie saying that every man should save himself as best he could. They set fire to the barracks before they left.
