Flora Macdonalds Birthplace, Scottish History

Outdoor Activities

"Flora MacDonald lived from 1722 to 5 March 1790. She is chiefly remembered as a heroine of the Jacobite cause for her part in helping Charles Edward Stuart - Bonnie Prince Charlie - "over the sea to Skye" from Benbecula in the Western Isles during his flight in the aftermath of the Battle of Culloden. "

"Flora was born in the Western Isles. A monument on South Uist marks the place where she is traditionally believed to have been born, though there is a widely held school of thought that she was actually born in Balivanich on Benbecula. Flora was the daughter of Ranald MacDonald of Milton and his wife Marion, the daughter of Angus MacDonald. Her father died early in her life, and her mother remarried, to Hugh MacDonald. Flora was brought up by the clan chief, MacDonald of Clanranald, and was partly educated in Edinburgh." (Description taken from Underscovered Scotland)
