Give the gift of my finest light and buttery shortbread in a beautiful box, featuring Hillsborough Fort, made in collaboration with the Hillsborough Fort Guard. Profits from the sale of these biscuits is split equally with the Hillsborough Fort Guard to help continue their important work.

Hillsborough Fort stands on the site of the Magennes Clan settlement in what was the ancient hamlet of Cromlyn.

Construction of the fort began in 1630 and was undertaken by Peter Hill, son of Sir Moyses Hill who had acquired the land which today centres upon Royal Hillsborough. The fort was completed by Colonel Arthur Hill in 1660 and in that year King Charles II granted it the status of a Royal Garrison, with the Colonel, “his heirs and assignes for ever”, becoming hereditary constable of the fort and given command to raise a guard of twenty warders. This unique tradition has survived over three and a half centuries.

The Hillsborough Fort Guard under the command of the present constable, Nicholas, 9th Marquess of Downshire, whilst mindful of this long history, look to the future and the reign of King Charles III as another chapter in our history is about to be written.
