The Stonywood was a lowland Jacobite
battalion raised in 1745 by James Moir 4th Laird of
Stoneywood in support of the Jacobite uprising 1745-1746.
men of the Stonywood came from various backgrounds and
had different motives for joining. Some were volunteers
and some were pressed into service. The Stonywood took
part in the conflicts at Inverurie, Falkirk and Culloden.
The battalion was disbanded in 1746.
We are individual
re-enactors who specialise in the mid 18th century and
have formed a group to represent Lowland Jacobite Soldiers.
Not only do we have an interest in this particular conflict
but also in the life and ways of the people of
these times. We endeavour to re-enact the period and
its people as accurate as possible and we learn more
in doing so.
The Stonywoods welcome new members. Men
and women, young and old, new to the period or veterans.
