The Banner Of Montrose

From Loyal Lochaber and its associations....

From all sides the clans hastened to the banner of Montrose thirsting for the blood of the hated Campbell. The MacDonalds of Clanranald, Keppoch, Glengarry and Glencoe; the Stewarts of Appin; Camerons from Loch Eil and Glen Nevis, in Lochaber; Farquharsons, MacLeans and many others who had suffered from the rapacity of Argyll now eagerly joined the royal forces determined to carry fire and sword into the very heart of their enemy's country and if possible surprise Mac Cailean Mbr (Marquis of Argyll) in his stronghold of Inveraray by the shores of Loch Fyne.
