Colours of the Reay Fencibles

The Reay Fencibles, consisting mainly of Mackays, was one of four Sutherland Fencible Regiments raised during the 18th century.

Established in 1795, the Reay Fencibles were commanded by Lord Reay, the Chief of the Mackays at that time. The Fencible Regiments were restricted to duties in Great Britain and Ireland and the Reays were sent to Dublin in 1798 to help suppress a rebellion. The regiment was disbanded in 1802.

The illustration is from 'Sutherland and the Reay Country' edited by Rev Adam Gunn & John Mackay, 1897
