The flight of Argyll from the Battle of Inverlochy, 1645

The second Battle of Inverlochy was fought in 1645 - the first had been in 1431 when the MacDonald Lords of the Isles had been victorious over the armies of James I. This second battle was fought between the royalist supporter James Graham, Marquis of Montrose, and Archibald Campbell, Earl of Argyll. In a fierce battle held at Inverlochy, Argyll escaped but lost 1500 of his men. The illustration is from 'Loyal Lochaber. Historical Genealogical and Traditionary' by W Drummond Norie, Glasgow, 1898
