The Glengarry McDonalds of Virginia
By Mrs Flora McDonald Williams (1911)

THE picture of Inver-Garry Castle above is the ancient fortress and strong-hold of the Glengarry McDonalds. It was burned by Cumberland in 1745, but the picturesque ruin is still in a good state of preservation. Here Prince Charlie slept the night before Culloden, and here he found refuge for a short time after that fateful battle. The mansion stood to the right of the Castle, and more in the Glen. The Glen behind the Castle, through which the river Garry flows, and from which the clan derived its name, is full of picturesque scenery, as well as the lake where the river rises.
