The Story of Mairi Macintyre


Mairi Macintyre was a serving maid at Culloden House before the battle of Culloden in April 1746, when Prince Charles Edward Stuart’s highland army was defeated by government troops. The Prince had given Mhairi his dog, Rowley, to care for and she rescued his injured horse, Hero. She hoped to return the animals to the prince who was fleeing William Duke of Cumberland’s troops. Unknown to her he suspected her plan and was following her hoping she would lead him to  the prince.

One thought on “The Story of Mairi Macintyre

  1. I remember reading this story in the 1980s (86, 87 or so) so I think it must have been one of the many ones that were reprinted.
