Glen Shiel Battlefield Memorial

This narrow pass was the site of the only battle of the 1719 uprising. On 10 June 1719 a Jacobite force of over 1000 men with a few hundred Spanish regular troops tried unsuccessfully to stop the advance of a similar sized Government force which included dragoons, artillery and two companies of loyal Highlanders. The Jacobites were driven from the steep hillsides by artillery and assault.


At all times.
