Scaur Hill Fort

Scaur Hill Fort (Ely’s Harbor, Somerset Road, Sandy’s Parish) — Built to protect overland routes to the Royal Naval Dockyard, the ramparts offer unequalled views of the Great Sound and lovely Ely’s Harbour. This untested fortification functioned well into the last century when American soldiers were stationed here during WWII. One of two 64-pound guns on disappearing carriages is still here. Free admission. Hours: 10:00 am – 4:30 pm (daily).
