Killiecrankie is a famous wooded gorge, where the Battle of Killiecrankie took place in 1689.
At the visitor centre you can find out about the events in 1689, where the first of three major Jacobite uprisings took place. See where an English solider is said to have escaped from Highland rebels by making a death-defying leap across the gorge at Soldier’s Leap. The centre features interactive displays, historic weapons and seasonal information.
Government troops were routed by Jacobite forces led by John Graham of Claverhouse, 'Bonnie Dundee'. Both sides suffered heavy losses and Dundee himself was killed. The Highlanders were unable to capitalise on their success, following the loss of their leader, and were decisively defeated at Dunkeld three weeks later.
There a number of walking routes which lead past the area and you can also go bungee jumping from the bridge with Highland Fling Bungee.
