Designs on the place:

A military map of the old ‘Fort at Inverlochy’, i.e. the ‘Fort’ in ‘Fort William.’

This map dates from January 1657, and has each section of the fort clearly marked – complete with the governor’s room (which has been recreated in panels within the museum), the commissary, the smithy,  supply stores, etc.

On the loch side of this map – in the grammar and spelling of the time –  is the phrase …

‘This is the lough …where our shipps comes in’

written over the stippled water.
