Flora Macdonalds Grave (Inner Hebrides)
The imposing Celtic cross memorial to Flora MacDonald can be found in Kilmuir Cemetery, on the Trotternish peninsula in the north of the Isle of Skye. The graveyard lies adjacent to the Skye Museum of Island Life
Flora MacDonald was buried in 1790 and was famously known as the ‘Preserver of Prince Charles Edward Stuart’ or Bonnie Prince Charlie. She was immortalised in the Skye Boat Song, after helping the prince escape from Uist to Skye following his army’s defeat at the Battle of Culloden.
There is a small car park attached to the graveyard behind the museum.
