The 326th anniversary of the Battle of Killiecrankie, (Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th July 2015 – 11am to 5pm, gates open 10.30am) is set to the best yet. It commemorates the first Jacobite Battle, a short lived victory for the Jacobites on the 27th July 1689. But brings in the wider aspect of that period, highland traditions, traditional story telling, piping, music, dance, cottage industry skills and more.
BIG Tent Family Ceilidh Saturday25th night on the Battlefield – a Ceilidh band, plus people taking a turn (as is traditional) by singing songs, telling stories, playing a wee tune.
The 2015 event will have:-
Bonnie Dundee’s Cavalry
Government and Jacobite troops,
Living History Camp- see how the troops would have lived when on the march.
Purcells Regimnet from Ireland (unique opportunity for 2015) to see and hear why the Irish were at the Battle of Killiecrankie. They are travelling all the way from Donegal Ireland to be here for 2015. I can not wait to see them in action and hear their story, with their gaelic comands.
