Yes the barracks are not a closed area, they are maintained ruins. There is no one there looking after them and you can just look around freely yourself. Car park nearby looking across the Inshes and to the barracks. There is a gate across the road from the carpark and a path which leads up to the Barracks of about 200yds with fenced fields at either side with horses and cattle. As far as I am aware dogs are allowed and of course with respect kept on a lead and any mess cleaned just as anywhere else really.
