Fort Duart and a remnant of the Forbes Trail are located in Folmont and are maintained by the FPOA. We are excited to join with Clan MaClean to help preserve the fort and the Forbes Trail. Our thanks to Peter Folen and a group of historians and reenactors who provided the MaCleans with a thorough understanding of the significance of the fort.

All of our efforts go towards the placement the fort on the National Register of Historic Properties.
