If you are in the area it is nice to see. There is a small stiarcase so you can climb to stand on the top. The view is very nice.

The walk from fort st Catherine here is absolutely wonderful. The gates fort used is just a small structure but being one of the oldest forts in the island it is significant.

The views from this fort are spectacular. There aren't crowds so you are not rushed like other places which is great. From the fort you will see the reefs and realize just how naturally protected this country is.

This small fort is one of those linking the defences of St George's Harbour. After the gate house there is only a small block house and two cannon to be seen, with no explanatory material. Even though the forts had inter-locking arcs, it is surprising...More
