Flora MacDonald's Statue, Inverness

This brass statue is of Flora MacDonald, a Highland lady who helped Charles Edward Stuart escape from the Hanoverian forces after the Battle of Culloden. With a Scottish hound at her feet, she is depicted looking out over the valley and shielding her eyes.

The statue was designed by Andrew Davidson, a sculptor from Inverness. Captain Henderson Macdonald bequeathed £1000 towards the cost of the monument, which stands outside Inverness Castle.

The inscription on the statue reads (in English and Gaelic): 'The preserver of Prince Charles Edward Stuart will be mentioned in history, and if courage and fidelity be virtues, mentioned with honour'.
