The small village of Ardersier in the Scottish Highlands lies approximately eight miles northeast of Inverness. It enjoys close proximity to Fort George, a huge fortification built after the battle of Culloden that still houses military personnel to this day.
Prior to the building of Fort George, a small fishing hamlet called Blacktown existed in the Fort George area with an economy based around several small open fishing boats. Its relocation eventually led to the creation of the village of Ardersier. This is now the closest settlement to Inverness Airport, which is just one mile away.
