Full Description

'Inverness District West Monumental Inscriptions', pre 1855
Monumental inscription survey completed by Alastair G Beattie & Margaret H Beattie . The survey may not include inscription information after 1855 and each inscription transcribed does not give the full details that appear on the stones, abbreviations used. Some omissions and inaccuracies may be encountered. First published 1993, reprinted 1994.

The Chisholm Stone stands by the roadside (in the grounds of the 'Chisholm Stone Hotel') above the E end of the bridge across the River Glass between Mauld and Struy. It stands near the site of the cottage that was the home of William Chisholm, who was a smith, armourer and standard bearer for the chief of Clan Chisholm, and his wife Christiana Ferguson. He was killed in the Battle of Culloden on 16/04/1746 and in memory she composed the Gaelic lament "Mo Run Geal Og" (My Fair Young Love). Their story was written in the Scots Magazine, April 1988, p54.
