Site of the final battle of the 1689 Rising on 1 May 1690. The Jacobite force of 1,500 was surprised in its camps at dawn by a larger government force and forced to flee. The Jacobites may have lost up to 400 men killed or captured. Lethendry Castle and the 'Piper's Stone' (both signposted locally) have links to the battle. A memorial plaque is fixed on the Watch House adjacent to the Kirk where the Government forces crossed the River Spey.


No restrictions. A battlefield leaflet is available locally (see weblink for download).
