Near the tip of the Trotternish Peninsula, just a mile and a half south west of the ruin of Duntulm Castle and a quarter of a mile east of the Skye Museum of Island Life, is one of Scotland's most fascinating - and most beautifully located - graveyards. Kilmuir Graveyard (Portree IV51 9EU) is well visited because of the identity of one person who was laid to rest here. One gravestone at Kilmuir literally towers above all the others. This is the tall cross marking the last resting place of Flora MacDonald, the "Preserver of Prince Charles Edward Stuart" complete with an epitaph written by the notable author Samuel Johnson (who, with James Boswell had met Flora in life during their tour of the Highlands). This reads "Her name will be mentioned in history and if courage and fidelity be virtues, mentioned with honour." Seven other members of her family are also buried here. There is also a memorial to fashion designer Alexander McQueen (1969-2010), a severely weathered standing gravestone that looks extremely old, and the head of a very old stone cross, simply lying unremarked in the grass near the memorial to Flora MacDonald.
