Inchgarvie Island in Firth of Forth

By johnsd  
A fort was built on the island during the reign of James IV in 1491.Since then and over the years it has been the location for various establisments, including a fortification, a prison, a quarantine hospital, over lengthy a period a gun battery and even part of the foundation for The Forth Bridge. In the first half of the twentieth century it played an important part in WW1 & WW2 when it became fortification, armament base and gun battery due to its close proximity to the bridge and the nearby Rosyth Naval Dockyard.
