This statue is in honour of Flora MacDonald of the Clan Macdonald of Sleat, who is best known for sheltering the young pretender, Bonnie Prince Charlie and allowing his escape from the Hanovarian forces after the Battle of Culloden.

The bronze statue depicts Macdonald in the traditional dress of the 18th century. She stands overlooking the great glen, her right hand held above her head as if shielding the eyes as she watches Bonnie Prince Charlie depart and never return.

The statue is inside Inverness Castle, which is currently closed for renovations. The statue is just beyond the gated entrance, so still visible.

There is a statue to Flora Macdonald outside the front of Inverness Castle. I visited in October 2021 and the castle was closed for renovations. On the hoardings surrounding the castle there is information about the castle, Flora Macdonald and what she did.

It's worth heading up to see the statue and admire the view looking down on the river and the surrounding area.

It's not often that one sees a statue of prominent female figure in public place, it certainly adds to the character of Inverness.

Situated in front of Inverness Castle, this large and rather grand statue of Flora MacDonals sits in a very prominent position. And rightly so, because this lady is a true legend in Scottish history, and deserves to be so commemorated and lauded.

This statue to Flora MacDonald sits in pride of place right outside Inverness Castle. A tribute to a woman who helped Charles Stuart escape after the defeat of the Jacobites at Culloden.

This statue has perhaps the most prominent position in all of Inverness. Situated immediately in front of Inverness castle overlooking the River Ness itself. Flora MacDonald is being celebrated here as she was the person responsible for helping Bonnis Prince Charlie evade capture by the Governmental troops following the Battle at nearby Culloden. This is strange as her family were loyal supporters of the government at the time. She was then imprisoned for her recklessness and following the general amnesty some years later, released and married and emigrated to America.

If you come to Inverness from Isle of Skye or the highlands, this is someone you will have heard of. She got Bonnie Prince Charlie out of Scotland and onto mainland Europe after the Jacobean uprising went south at nearby Culloden. The plaque at this statue seems to indicate she emigrated from Scotland in later life to the colonies (North Carolina specifically) but she remains a local hero.
