James Graham, Marquess of Montrose

A description of James Graham, Marquess of Montrose, from Loyal Lochaber and its associations....:

"And now like a meteor flashing brilliantly across the sky on a winter's night leaving a train of shining sparks in its wake so across the dim pages of history we see as it were written in characters of fire the name of Montrose, a name feared by king and Covenanters alike; for true to his convictions, both parties in the State had felt the strength of his iron hand, and had used his military skill and intrepid courage to good purpose."
