    Locals are suspicious of strangers with only five fingers per hand. and a mouth

    with more then five teeth.

    Was in the fort this time last year, well worth a look. found very interesting

    a display of the tools and equipment to maintain the weapons

    Can't help with the guns, but I've been to the Fort, its very interesting, and the scenery is breath taking.

    Highly recommended.

    started a topic Fort Dunree

    Fort Dunree

    Can anybody help with a listing of the guns currently on display in Dunree?

    And were all of these 'native' to the Fort or which were brought in during the Museum development?

    Thank you
