Clachan Bridge

Clachan Bridge (the so called Bridge over the Atlantic) was built between 1792 and 1793 and connects the isle of Seil with the mainland. Some people have attributed the design of the bridge to Thomas Telford.

 The building on the left is the Tigh an Truish Inn (the House of the Trousers), so called because it is said that following the banning of the kilt after the45, islanders would change from their kilts into trousers here before crossing to the mainland.

Cumha Do dh’Uilleam Siosal

(Lament for William Chisholm)

This sends shivers down my spine, a fine Lament for a lost love….on The Anniversary of Culloden………

At Cullodeon William Chisholm, was flag-bearer of the Clan Chisholm. He fought long and bravely; and even after the retreat had become general, he rallied and led his clansmen again and again to the charge. A body of the Chisholms ultimately sought shelter in a barn, which was soon surrounded by hundreds of the soldiers of the Royal Army, but William Chisholm cut his way through them with his sword until he was shot in the back by some Englishmen. His widow, Christiana Fergusson, a native of the parish of Contin, Ross-shire, where her father was a blacksmith, composed a beautiful lament for him in Gaelic, “Cumha do dh’ Uilleam Siosal,’ which is still popular in the Highlands today.

Oh young Charles Stewart
Your cause is the reason of my sorrow
You took from me everything I had
In the war on your behalf
I am not mourning cattle and sheep
But my partner
Since I am left alone
With nothing but my shroud
My bright young love

I am torn apart
And although I say it, it is no lie
My joy turned to sorrow
Since you will not return from death
One of your wisdom and understanding
Was not easy to find
And not one stood at Culloden
Of your appearance and bravery
My bright young love
