13 Nov 2009: Battle of Sheriffmuir Commemoration
13th November 2009
A large group of MacRaes and friends gathered at the Sheriffmuir Monument on a crisp and dry evening to commemorate the 293rd Anniversary of the Battle in which so many of our kin fell.

The Monument was illuminated by a horde of oil lamps as Clan Piper Jimi McRae played a welcome as the participants arrived. Marigold MacRae spoke of the significance of Sheriffmuir and of those who still rest there before Commander Jim McRae gave an account of the battle. Marigold then laid a wreath of white roses on behalf of all MacRaes before those present came forward to lay individual white roses below the plaque.

Afterwards we moved up to the Sheriffmuir Inn for a much appreciated drink and, later, about a dozen of those present stayed on for a meal.

It was a great opportunity to meet new faces and enjoy some true MacRae fellowship.

Considerable discussion took place about future events in the area, the first of which will be a table at the Sheriffmuir Inn's popular Burns Supper on 25th January 2010. Details of this can be found on our Events page. If you are interested in attending any events or have an idea for an event, please contact us!
