Pass of Killiecrankie

Scenic river gorge, part of the Killiecrankie battlefield with trails and National Trust for Scotland visitor centre. On 27 July 1689 Government troops under General Hugh Mackay emerged from the pass and faced a large force of Highlanders under John Graham, Viscount Dundee. A large part of the Government force was routed and ‘Soldiers Leap’ is where one lucky redcoat escaped across the River Garry. The main battlefield is just north of the pass.
