On this spot where

Prince Charles Edward Stuart

first raised his standard

on the XIX day of august MDCCXLV

when he made the noble and gallant attempt

to recover a throne lost by his ancestors

this column was erected by

Alexander MacDonald Esquire of glenaladale

to commemorate the generous zeal

the undaunted bravery and the inviolable fidelity

of his forefathers and the rest of those

who fought and bled in that

arduous and unfortunate enterprise

this pillar is now

alas!

also become the monument

of it’s amiable and accomplished founder

who

before it was finished

died in Edinburgh on IV day of January

MDCCCXV

at the early age of XXVIII years
