The 1745 Association is holding a tour of Dunkeld on Saturday afternoon, August 17th, to commemorate the 330th anniversary of the Battle of

2:00 PM: A walking tour of the town, taking in key points in the battle, under the guidance of Kevin Smith and John McCulloch, Council Members of The 1745 Association. The tour will include a visit to the Cathedral and a description of tactics and clothing used at the battle, concluding with a brief commemoration of those who fell on both sides of the conflict in Dunkeld Cathedral

3:30 PM: Return to the Perth Arms Hotel for a re-enactment of the famous Jacobite toast "Tae the King o'er the Water"

“There are, as the old song says, more questions than answers. This is certainly true of Dunkeld, the orphan battle - forgotten, neglected, fatherless, not belonging to any family - quite unlike any other battle fought during the Jacobite Wars. Here are just a few of the unanswered questions that we will try to address this afternoon:
• Why don't we know, even approximately, how many soldiers fought at the battle?
• How can it be that, when we are told the battle ended at 12 o'clock, we don't know whether this means midday or midnight?
• The obvious answer is because the records are so poor. Which gives rise to another question - why are there so many gaps in official accounts of the Battle of Dunkeld? The suspicion, when official sources provide very little information about an event, is that it may be because officials have something to hide. What could that be?.....
