Glenfinnan Monument (NTS)

This impressive monument was erected in 1815 by Alexander Macdonald of Glenaladale in tribute to the clansmen who fought and died in the cause of Prince Charles Edward Stuart.

This impressive monument was erected in 1815 by Alexander Macdonald of Glenaladale in tribute to the clansmen who fought and died in the cause of Prince Charles Edward Stuart. The raising of the Prince's Standard took place here on 19 August, 1745, in the last attempt to reinstate the exiled Stuarts to the throne of Great Britain and Ireland. Despite its inspired beginnings and subsequent successes, the Prince's campaign came to its grim conclusion in 1746 on the battlefield at Culloden. The visitor centre includes displays and an audio programme about the Prince's campaign from Glenfinnan to Derby and back to the final defeat at Culloden. Shop, snack bar with home-baking, picnic area. Image Credit ©  National Trust - Glenfinnan Monument.
