battle of Inverlochy

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference


*Montrose's victory at Aberdeen in September 1644 was but a raid and he was soon on the move again, pursued by superior forces under Argyll himself. When the covenanters retired for the winter, Montrose was persuaded to an insolent incursion into the heart of Campbell country around Inverary. On 2 February 1645, under the shadow of Ben Nevis, Argyll's forces were cut to pieces at Inverlochy.
