Scotland’s historic battlefields

Published on July 28th, 2009 | by Admin


A list of Scottish battlefields with historical significance is being compiled to help with site protection efforts. It won’t be complete until 2011, however. I never knew there were so many battlefields!

Councils will then have to consider a site’s history when deciding planning applications, although building on battlefields will not be forbidden.

The scheme was officially unveiled on the 320th anniversary of the Battle of Killiecrankie, the first major battle of the Jacobite Risings.
