Dunkeld Cathedral
On 21 August 1689, Dunkeld Cathedral was garrisoned by the newly raised Cameronians, a staunchly Presbyterian regiment raised in Douglas, Lanarkshire and virulently anti-Stuart. At 7am they were attacked by a 3000 strong Jacobite army, still fresh from their triumph at Killiecrankie almost a month ago. The fighting continued for approximately 4 hours when the Jacobite army broke off the attack and withdrew. Casualties amongst the Jacobite army have been estimated at 300 dead, and the battle also saw the death of the Cameronian commander, Colonel William Cleland, who is buried in the nave of the cathedral.
