Battle of Inverkeithing memorial cairn
On 20 July 1651, a Scottish army comprising Covenanters and Royalists fighting under the flag of Charles II were defeated whilst attempting to throw back a Cromwellian invasion force. For Clan MacLean the slaughter at the battle was particularly horrific - out of the original contingent of 800, some 760 clansmen were killed, including their chief, Sir Hector Ruadh MacLean.

The cairn in the picture was erected on the 350th anniversary of the battle by the Clan MacLean Heritage Trust.
