Flora MacDonald

Flora MacDonald (1722-1790) was a heroine of the Jacobite cause, who helped Bonnie Prince Charlie escape the Hanoverians after the Battle of Culloden (1746). Flora is depicted with her collie dog looking out over the valley of the River Ness. It is thought the statue was paid for by Captain J. Henderson MacDonald of Caskieben, and of the 78th Highlanders.

Location: Castle Hill, Inverness, Scotland.
