Flora MacDonald's Statue, Inverness

This photograph shows crocuses on the banks around Inverness Castle. In the background can be seen Flora MacDonald's statue, which stands in front of the Castle.

Flora MacDonald was 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 its cost.
