THE TOMBSTONES OF THE CLANS AND OTHER LANDMARKS OF PRINCE CHARLIE: THE MONUMENT TO FLORA MACDONALD

THE TOMBSTONES OF THE CLANS AND OTHER LANDMARKS OF PRINCE CHARLIE: THE MONUMENT TO FLORA MACDONALD

At Culloden the common grave of each clan is marked by a single tombstone on the moor (bottom left). That of Clan Cameron shown in the photograph has a special significance, for it was Cameron of Lochiel whose initial adherence to the cause gave the rising at least a chance of success. The Cumberland Stone (bottom right) was placed there to mark the position of the Hanoverian Army at the outset of the battle. From Duddingston, outside Edinburgh, Prince Charlie led his Highland army forth on September 20, 1745, to its victory at Prestonpans ; the prince's headquarters is shown in the photograph (top left). At Inverness the Flora Macclonald monument (top right) outside the castle is a tribute to a woman's personal courage and resource.
