Culloden Ceremony


The Battle of Culloden remembrance ceremony has been held in Knoydart Nova Scotia since 1982.

A cairn was built in 1938, in memory of three men who fought in the battle of Culloden, namely, Angus, Hugh MacDonald, and John MacPherson. Angus MacDonald and John MacPherson came from Kinlochmoidart, Scotland and came in a ship named Dunkeld with other immigrants in 1791.

They were both old men at the time and both had fought at the battle of Culloden. They were imprisoned in Kelso and Edinburgh and were released under the general pardon of 1747. They settled in the place they named Moidart in Pictou County, NS which is now known as Knoydart and McArras Brook.
