Glen Garry

Glen Garry is the valley of the River Garry which flows east from Loch Quoich to Loch Garry. It belonged to the MacDonnells of Glengarry. Their chief raised a regiment, the Glengarry Fencibles, in 1774. Between 1802 and 1804 many of the Glengarry Fencibles emigrated to Glengarry County, Ontario, where the regiment was re-formed and fought against the American invaders in the war of 1812.
