Scaur Hill Fort Park , , | Directions

Scaur Hill Fort was starting to be built in the late 1860's by the British Army's Royal Engineers to protect the Royal Naval Dockyard against a possible land attack. 

The fort consists of a dry moat cutting across Somerset Island from Ely's Harbour to the Great Sound, along with ramparts on the northern side of the ditch creating a killing zone below. 

Now the fort is looked at as a centrepiece of a pleasant park, with high views of the ocean and the park area. 

Free admission, open every day to the public.
