“King Charles II.'s standard had on the 27th July been raised at Killin. Mercurius Politicus No.167 states, Edinburgh August 1653: "We now have certain intelligence that on the 27th July Charles Stuart's standard was set up at Killing. On that day 40 horsemen, well mounted with swords and pistols, went by the house of Doune (Doune Castle) towards the Highlands and on the 28th Sir Mungo Murray went thither in the night; and Kenmore with 100 horsemen crossed the Water of Clyd, and went by Duntreth towards Killing and is returned into the South to raise more forces. On the 30th Glencairn was at Maggrigor's House in Loth Kennoth (Loch Ranooch the Hall on the Island) and listed three men there. To each he gave 2/6 and sent them for the lowlands, there to be in readiness and return on notice." [3]  

From
"An account of the expedition of William 9th Earl of Glencairn as General of His Majesty's Forces in the Highlands of Scotland 1653-1654, written by John Graham of Deuchrie who was eye and ear witness to all that passed from first to last." [4]  

"The Earl of Glencairn went from his own house of Finleston in the beginning of August, 1653 to Lochearn, where several of the Clans did meet him, viz the Earl of Atholl, MacDonald of Glengarie, Cameron of Lochyell, ordinarily called MacEldney, John Graham of Deuchrie, Donald [5]   MacGregour tutor of MacGregour, Farquharson of Inverey, Robertson of Strowan, MacNachtane of MacNachtane, Archibald Lord Lorn, afterwards earl of Argyle, Colonel Blackader of Tullyallan.

"These gentlemen, after some few days consultation with his lordship, did promise to bring out what forces they could with all expedition. My lord, notwithstanding, did lie to and from the hills, not having any with him but the writer of this, and three servants, for the space of six weeks.

"The first forces that came to, him here, were brought by John Graham of Deuchrie: they were forty footmen. Within two or three days after came Donald MacGregour the Tutor, with eighty footmen. Having been joined by some eighty Horse and about the same number of Lowlandmen on foot and marched to Deuchrie, Glencairn's rising attracted the attention of the parliamentary authorities.

"Colonel Kidd, [6]   Governor of Stirling, being informed that the king's forces were come so near him, did march with the most part of his Regiment of foot and troop of horse, to Aberfoyle, within three miles from the place where my Lord General did lie, who, having intelligence thereof, did march with the small force he had, [page 127] to the pass of Aberfoyle; and drawing up his forces within the pass, did distribute his footmen on both sides thereof, very advantageously; and the horse which were commanded by Lord Kenmure, were drawn up on the wings of the foot. He gave orders that Captain Hamilton who com¬manded the Lowlandmen, called Gravats with Deuchrie's men should receive the first charge, which they did very gallantly; and at the very first encounter, the enemy began to retire back. The General perceiving the same, did com¬mand the Highland forces to pursue, as also Lord Kenmure with the Horse he had. The enemy began upon this, downright to run; they were pursued very hard, they lost on the spot about sixty, and about eighty were killed in the pursuit: no prisoners were taken. My Lord General having succeeded so well, from all places men did daily come in to him. We then marched to LochEarn, and from that to Loch Rannoch, where at the Hall in the Isle of Loch Rannoch the Clans met him.

"The Clans who met him at Loch Rannoch brought their forces with them: the Laird of Glengarie brought three hundred very pretty men - the Laird of Lochyell brought four hundred Lochaber men - the Tutor of MacGregour had then about two hundred men with him."

This is the last mention of the MacGregors in Glencairn's expedition but it is probable that they may have accompanied him in his various marches till he capitulated with General Monk, 4th September 1654. It is to be observed that although Graham of Deuchrie's account is that of one of the Earl of Glencairn's officers - yet he is undoubtedly in error in naming the Tutor of MacGregor as Donald. We know positively from the public Records that his name was Malcolm and therefore the mis¬nomer must have been a slip of memory.
