Battle site of Altimarlach *

In this region: <<<<<  >>>>>

Description:

It is said that Altimarlach is the site of the last clan battle. I am not quite sure about that but in 1680 there was a short battle here between the Campbells of Glenorchy and the Sinclairs of Keiss. The Sinclairs got the worst of it. Most warriors were buried at the site where a cross was erected much later in 1901. An inscription on the cross reads:
 "The Battle of Altimarlach was fought around this cross 13th July 1680. The last feudal battle in Scotland".
