Soldier’s Leap, Killiecrankie


Soldier’s Leap, Killiecrankie


On 27 July 1689 the first shots in the Battle of Killiecrankie were fired – it would be one of the goriest battles in Scottish history. A government “redcoat” soldier, who was escaping the battle on foot, pursued by Highland soldiers, is said to have jumped eighteen feet across the river, from rocks shown in this photograph, to save his life.. The rocks have been known as Soldier’s Leap ever since.

I’ve visited this spot on a number of occasions, taking photographs of the wonderful colours, but the blue of the River Garry, and the surrounding woodland’s oranges, yellows, greens and greys, makes this my favourite.
