Dumbarton Castle has an impressive setting dominating the river Clyde. King George’s battery was named after King George II and dates to 1735 (noted on an inscription). The battery position was designed by Captain John Romer.

The sentry box is similar to another of Romer’s design at Edinburgh Castle.
