Stones bearing the names of the clans have been erected at the head of the graves or trenches where the Highlanders were buried. C. House, where Prince Charles lodged the night preceding the battle, is ¾ mile SE. of ry. sta." Description from John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles (1887).
