Glen Moriston

Glen Coe

This picturesque glen is lined with Caledonian pines and is dominated by the river Moriston which flows through it. In modern times the river has been used to make hydro electricity. Glen Moriston was earmarked for the introduction of wild boar as recently as November 2009.

Glen Moriston is mentioned most often in history due to its association with the Jacobite rebellions. In the aftermath of the 1745 uprising the fugitive Charles Edward Stuart, otherwise known as Bonnie Prince Charlie was kept safe here after the battle of Culloden by the “seven men of Glen Moriston”. The protection provided to the Prince was quite remarkable given the fact that a reward of £30,000 was placed upon his head. This would equate to over £4 million in today’s money.
