The Soldier's Leap in the Pass of Killiecrankie

Legend has it that Donald MacBean, a government soldier, avoided capture by jumping 5.5 metres (18.5 feet) across the River Garry after the Battle of Killiecrankie on 27 July 1689.

Located about three miles north of Pitlochry, the Pass of Killiecrankie is a steep gorge dominated by ancient mixed woodlands.
