Pass of Killiecrankie.

On 27 July 1689, the Battle of Killiecrankie was fought between Jacobites loyal to King James VII and II and troops supporting the Protestant King William.
The Jacobites, led by John Graham of Claverhouse, ‘Bonnie Dundee’, were mainly Highland Scots gathered by the clan chief Cameron of Lochiel.
The Government troops, loyal to King William, were under the command of the Highlander General Hugh Mackay of Scourie. Most of the Government troops were Lowland Scots.
