This was one of the traditional drove roads along which cattle could be moved on the hoof. It linked Highland and Lowland Scotland. Its present name is a modern one for originally it was known as An Caol Ghleann, The Narrow Glen. Bonnie Prince Charlie marched through the glen on his way to the infamous massacre at Culloden in 1746. In the 18th century General Wade built a military road through the glen. King Malcolm III of Scotland also marched through the glen to recover his kingdom from the usurper Macbeth.The Romans even built a fort and watchtower at Fendoch.
