Posted on: 5/14/2019 8:54:20 AM
The Battle of Killiecrankie was fought on the 27 July 1689 and was the first major engagement in the Jacobite rebellions.

A Government army was lured through the narrow, two mile long Pass of Killiecrankie where they were attacked and defeated by a combined force of Highlanders and Irishmen under the command of James Graham of Claverhouse.

Despite particular hostile opinions of the Highlanders, particularly from the Scottish Government, attempts were made to reconcile the northern clans with the regime of William and Mary.

A general amnesty was offered on 27 August 1691 to any clans who had participated in the uprising provided they took an oath of allegiance to the new monarchs.

This reconciliation was severely undermined by the massacre of Glencoe in February 1692. Both this and subsequent political changes - including the Act of Settlement (1701), which formally barred any Catholics from the throne, and the merger of the English and Scottish Governments by the Act of Union (1707) - meant three further Jacobite rebellions would follow in 1715, 1719 and 1745.

Ultimately all were defeated and, with the construction of a military road network, life in the Highlands was transformed forever.
