No.3: The Mattock!

No, we are not in the enchanted forest with snow white and the seven dwarfs and if you have ever tried carrying the Mattock like one of the dwarfs your local ranger propably told you off for it. The Mattock is a great tool but one that has to be used with caution as it can be quite a force of nature. You don't want to miss it with footpath work, tree work (either planting or removing), invasive species controll (removing turfs full of weeds for example), gardening and moving heavy objects.
One of the tools the mountain footpath team uses most.

If you want to find out more about the mountain footpath team and the valuable work they are doing up on our hills and mountains, check out the lates Trust Magazine or look it up online:

It's #HotToddyDay! And given the frosty weather in Perthshire at the moment, it hasn't come a moment too soon...

To celebrate at home, here's a super simple recipe for our delicious Aberfeldy hot toddy. Not lucky enough to have a bottle of our amazing World of Zing toddy syrup yet? No problem. Simply stir your favourite honey slowly into an equal quantity of warm water till dissolved, and add cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger to taste.

If all this sounds far too difficult, why not let us make you one? We're open now!

Stirling Castle

The castle's defences were tested for the last time in January 1746.

During the last Jacobite Rising of 1745-6, Bonnie Prince Charlie, grandson of the exiled King James VII, laid siege to Stirling Castle. The castle was held by a government garrison under the command of General William Blakeney at the time.

The Jacobite army obtained the surrender of the town of Stirling on 8 January 1746, following their retreat north from Derby the previous month. However, although the town council saw wisdom in peaceful surrender to Bonnie Prince Charlieโ€™s troops, General Blakeneyโ€™s garrison within Stirling Castle were not of a mind to capitulate, and declined a request to do so on 18 January.

In response to this, Prince Charles decided to lay siege to the castle. A French engineer of Scottish descent, called Monsieur Mirabel de Gordon, was entrusted with co-ordinating the siege, a task for which he demonstrated no particular flair. The principal Jacobite batteries were placed on the Gowan Hill, immediately adjacent to the castle, and ominously overlooked by the castleโ€™s Grand Battery.

By 28 January the Jacobite batteries were completed on the Gowan Hill, and the next day - 29 January 1746 - the Jacobite guns opened fire on the castle. General Blakeneyโ€™s reply, with the garrisonโ€™s vastly superior armaments, very quickly brought the last ever siege of Stirling Castle to an abrupt end, with great loss of Jacobite lives and equipment.

On 1 February 1746, with the siege of Stirling Castle unsuccessful and the Duke of Cumberlandโ€™s Hanoverian army making haste for Stirling, Bonnie Prince Charlie and his Jacobite force crossed the River Forth and retired north into the Highlands.

The Jacobite Clans won a decisive battle three miles from Pitlochry in 1689 at Killiecrankie. The small highland clan Jacobite army defeated a force almost twice its size of regular Red Coat Soldiers, some of the very best troops in Europe. Three of the Red Coat regiments were trained in the latest European Battle tactics having been fighting with the Dutch on the continent. Today there is a fight to preserve the heart of our Jacobite Battlefield, as Transport Scotland are determined to drive a new road right over the very place where many of the 2,000 men lost their lives over 330 years ago on Killiecrankie Battlefield.

Not a foregone conclusion. Someone will need to be appointed to carry out a heritage impact assessment in due course before any decision is made.

I sympathize with my Scottish friends. We here in the U.S, are going through much the same. History is being destroyed in the name of progress.

There will have been archaeological work carried out on behalf of Transport Scotland in advance of any proposals to site the road. Probably in the last couple of years. This is the law and cannot be side-stepped. Have you had access to those findings? If so, what do they show? Do they support the argument (hopefully) to go north of the existing A9?

The SNP say we dont have enough people in Scotland, that they would open the doors to mass migration, to which end such sites must go, be it for housing transport or food production, we will have to give up such sites to met the demands of the increased population.

Absolutely disgraceful!! Our beautiful countryside and history is being decimated by the vociferous building programmes in this country. I will write too!! ๐Ÿ˜ก

Keep up the good fight.

Thay want too build houses on culloden too I see a pattern here

General wade did the same straight through Areas of importance , even in fife moving a gorgeous stone circle for no real reason

Nice to see people who actually care about our history. Just a pity the Scottish government will not listen to anyone and just do as they please. History means nothing to them. Just like the people from America are saying, it is happening in their country as well. Sad times indeed.

This Scottish government do not care about history at all or climate change. I was on the march at Culloden against building houses on the Moor where jacobites would have been slaughtered trying to escape the Cumberland soldiers. Now Killiekrankie battlefield, more destruction to our history. Let the dead soldiers lie in peace. As the gentleman said put the new carriageway to the other side of the proposed development that way the carriageway is still getting built with less distruction to the battlefield. When I mentioned climate change at the start this government are all about not caring. Aviemore 1500 houses getting built on beautiful land which were knocked back by the council. Pylons through Glencoe next to the slaughter of the Macdonalds. History

Fortunately for Scotland the Cameronians later held and defeated the Jacobite remnant at Dunkeld. The Jacobites, of course, were the original Tories (literally the supporters of the dispossessed James VII), with power, privilege and patronage at the heart of everything they did or wanted (then as now).

Shouldn't be done...the land should be preserved and the story told and retold....it's called history

Would be such a shame. I lived not far from there and love the area.

Keep up the fight ! History is slowly being destroyed by roads and housing , soon there will be nothing left!!!!

I'd put the needs of the people alive now and in the future ahead of 331-year old ghosts... despite 100% respecting their bravery and sacrifice.

E-mail being sent this evening, post shared, I truely hope they see sense!

I love that area BUT it’ll probably be a done deal and lesson to Pitlochry to choose it’s partners better. I was at last years Highland games and saw stalls for both SNP & Yes2 campaign BUT NO other parties or campaigns! Very disappointed that they targeted such an event and that they were allowed to campaign there!

Well done fighting the good fight guys..... Will share this and hopefully the powers that be see sense. To go forwards you have to remember what came before. Good luck.

Another bit of Scottish history going to be lost a disgrace.

Come on Nicola if you truly love Scotland get this sorted.

Without wishing to derail this thread, it always astonishes me how little is ever made of the Battle of Dunkeld a few days later which again was Scot vs Scot, this time with a different but decisive result.

Sent Dear First Minister,Firstly, a Happy New Year to you and your husband and I hope it brings you both health and happiness in the future.As an avid follower of the road to independence, I am somewhat dismayed by the video I just watched on the expansion of the A9 across the Killiecrankie battlefield. As a patriotic Scot and former serviceman, military history means a lot to me and I would hope that Transport Scotland will listen to the concerns of those who both live in the area and those who so enthusiastically keep the story of Killiecrankie alive.I am also emailing in the hope that your public enquiry will be fair and impartial and listen to the concerns of all parties and not just be driven by monetary costs or planning delays should a change in route be the given choice.I look forward to hearing of the findings and decision made during any statement you make in Holyrood.On a secondary note, this is a big year for the people of Scotland and we have the momentum but please do not lose sight on important historical and environmental issues such as this in your quest to follow Scotland's dream.Yours Aye, David Provan

Email sent and shared video shared. This is a great video that shows how reasonable everyone is being! Good luck

Disgracefull

Why cant they leave these historical sights alone, I think brown envelopes are in hand somewhere
