Rullion Green

December 3, 2016

Mon 28 Nov was the 350th anniversary of the battle of Rullion Green.

This relatively unknown battle was fought between the Covenanters and Scottish Government in 1666 – in the Pentland hills near Edinburgh. The Covenanters were armed mostly with pitchforks and scythes and had little chance against professional soldiers. The battle was a defeat for the Covenanters.

The club attended the battle site as a private commemoration to both sides in the campaign.
