As they looked to Ben Nevis at dawn the next morning, they were dismayed to see MacColla and Montrose advancing down the side of the mountain towards them. Of the 3, Covenanters, around half were killed, including their commander Campbell of Auchinbreck. The Battle of Inverlochy is not as well remembered as Bannockburn or Culloden, but its importance to the Gaelic world is reflected in the large amount of poetry that was written about it.

A long list of the most important figures of Clan Campbell were either killed or captured, and owing to the kin-based structure of Gaelic warfare, entire families were cut down together.

When the Campbells placed a bounty on his head, Iain Lom appeared at Inveraray to personally collect the money for himself. The Campbells rewarded his audacity by entertaining him as their guest for a week. Alasdair, son of handsome Colla, skilled hand at cleaving castles, you put to flight the Lowland pale-face what kale they had taken came out of them again. Do you remember the place called the Tawny Field?

Description

It got a fine dose of manure, not the dung of sheeps or goats, but Campbell blood well congealed. Following the Battle of Inverlochy, the Royalist campaign in Scotland continued and the Montrose-MacColla alliance achieved three more significant victories at Auldearn, Alford and Kilsyth. Despite the success, the partnership between the two men was only ever one of mutual convenience.

Having won six major battles against the Covenanters, Montrose now proposed that they travel south to England to aid Charles I in his battle against the English Parliament. Montrose fled to the highlands, then into exile in Norway in However, his return to Ireland coincided with an intensification of the Civil War and a crushing series of defeats for the Confederate cause in their war against the English Parliament. Taafe positioned his army on either side of a hill, which meant that neither side of the Confederate army could see each other.

Unbeknownst to MacColla, the other wing of the Confederate force had been driven from the field, meaning he was now surrounded on all sides. When MacColla realised the hopelessness of his situation he surrendered. The problem for MacColla therefore is that the voice that dominated Scotland for the next few hundred years was neither Catholic or Gaelic, but the voice of the Lowland English-speaking Presbyterian. Professor David Stevenson successfully argues that no where is this more obvious than the traditional accounts given of the Battle of Auldearn.

Thanks for this. Having a wee search for Dorothy Brown from Luing, I see that she was in fact a supporter of MacColla and the other poem which I have wrongly attributed to her was written by an anonymous writer. I will make the edit — thanks for bringing it to my attention. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
