When is this event?
A guided walk of the Battle of Cromdale, the last Scottish battle of the 1689 Jacobite Rising.
Starting at Cromdale Church, we will explore the context of the Rising and the surprise attack on the Jacobite lookouts in the churchyard, before journeying to the site of the Jacobite encampment on Tom Lethendry. Here we will examine why the Jacobites chose Cromdale to encamp and the battle itself. At the ruins of Lethendry Castle, hear stories of how Generals Canon and Buchan escaped as well as how the government forces forced the garrison to surrender. Finally, back at the church, we will look at the aftermath of the battle and how it still impacts Britain today.
