The Grave of Flora McDonald

Kilmuir, on Skye’s Trotternish Peninsula, houses the historic burial ground of Flora MacDonald. This Jacobite heroine, born in Milton, South Uist, gained acclaim for aiding Bonnie Prince Charlie’s escape post-Culloden in 1746. Arrested and imprisoned in the Tower of London, her act was hailed as heroism rather than treason. Today, a grand Celtic cross marks her grave in Kilmuir, testament to her lasting legacy. Even centuries later, visitors leave flowers at her memorial, honouring her courage and compassion.
