Battle of Falkirk monument
Erected near the battlefield, this monument commemorates one of the battles won by Bonnie Prince Charlie. On 17 January 1746 during the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745 on this moor to the south west of Falkirk the Highland Army of Prince Charles and the royal troops of George II fought a short bloody battle under their generals: Prince Charles, Lord George Murray, and Lieutenant General Henry Hawley. It was fought by around 5,000 highlanders and 7,000 royal troops. The royal army lost around 350 men killed, wounded and missing. Some 300 were captured. The highlanders lost about 50 dead and 70 wounded.
