Sherriffmuir Scotland

Sherriffmuir is located about ten miles north of Stirling. Clan MacRae participated in the Battle of Sheriffmuir in 1715. William MacKenzie, 5th Earl of Seaforth bravely led the MacKenzies and the MacRaes in support of King James VIII, and great loss of life and property ensued. The men who died during this rising are memorialized at Sheriffmuir on a cairn dedicated by Clan MacRae in the 1920's.
