A resume of the full programme of activities is as follows:

1100 Joint presentation by 1745 Association Chairman, Mike Nevin, and Vice-Chairman, Glen MacDonald, on the battle, its aftermath and the death of Young Glengarry.

1315 Coach to the battlefield

1330-1530 Guided tour of the battlefield by Geoff Bailey

O/c Afternoon tea at a cafe adjacent to the battlefield and disperse thereafter.

The piper for all the events will be the Society’s Piper, Sandy MacDonell.

The costing arrangements for the day are quite simple in that each participant would be asked for £2 on arrival in the morning if they wished to partake of morning coffee and biscuits. Thereafter individuals would simply pay for their own snack lunch and afternoon tea. Those non members of the 1745 Association who wished to take the coach up the battlefield would be asked for a contribution towards its cost (likely to be £10.)

Please advise Lois MacDonell of Glengarry (loismac4@btinternet.com) if you wish to attend and would like to share transport from the Inverness area. Please also state if you wish to travel on the coach to the battlefield.
