Fort George, one of the world’s most formidable 18th century fortifications, built 11 miles north-east of Inverness in the Scottish highlands as part of the pacification of the final Jacobite rebellion. Completed in 1769 after over 20 years of building at a cost of around £26,000,000 in today’s money, the fort is still a British Army base 200 years on.

O atleta amador de fisiculturismo na categoria Men’s Physique pela Federação IFBB,George Muchuli posou com exclusividade para oVipado em um belíssimo ensaio clicado pelo fotógrafo carioca, Lëo Castro.
