PLEASE NOTE: It will not be possible to take part in our event without travelling with us from Inverness to Kintail by our organised coaches.  At the Battle Site we have obtained special parking permission for the coaches.  The National Trust and authorities have indicated that there WILL BE NO other parking opportunities available in the area. Also as attendance numbers will be limited YOU MUST BOOK if you intend to come to the ceremony. We cannot guarantee your attendance or safety otherwise.  We have the responsibility for a maximum of 200 people attending, the site is on a very busy road with no on-site parking and as your safety is of paramount importance we do need to know who is attending and the only way to do that is for you to book a place.

We are very pleased to have been successful in receiving a grant from Visit Scotland under their Clan Event Fund to help allay costs. Our thanks to the National Trust for Scotland for access to the site.
