Clan MacRae Memorial, Battle of Sheriffmuir, 1715
OS Ref: NN 815 018

A very grand memorial erected in 1915 for the Clam MacRae men who fell at the Battle of Sheriffmuir, 1715.

A smaller cairn commemorating the battle was erected at a later date.

It overlooks the site of the battle



Clan MacRea erected two more memorials shortly after this to their sons lost in the Great War.
