Funeral of Highland Chief
from the Portsmouth Herald
March 7, 1906

Nearly every great Highland family was represented at the funeral of Cameron of Lochiel, twenty-fourth chief of Clan Cameron, which took place at Fort William recently.  Many were the tartans worn, Cluny, Mackintosh, Ballindalloch, Glenaladale, Lovat, Ardgour, Gairloch, Glenmuick all were there, as well as the earls of Leven and Dalkeith.  A long procession was formed, and wound its way round the base of mighty Ben Nevis, past the towers of ancient Inverlochy and the battlefield where Montrose broke the power of Argyll, to the little Highland church among the hills.  The body was laid to rest in the little cemetery, amid the mournful wail of the bagpipes.

Editor's Note: Donald Cameron of Lochiel, XXIV Chief of Clan Cameron, died on November 30, 1905.
