The village of Moy (Scottish Gaelic: A' Mhòigh) is situated between the villages of Daviot and Tomatin, in the Highland region of Scotland. It sits beside Loch Moy and used to have a railway station on the Inverness and Aviemore Direct Railway.

Rout of Moy

On 16th February 1746 Charles Edward Stuart spent the night at Moy Hall. To prevent the troops from Inverness descending on the estate in surprise during the night, Lady Anne Farquharson-MacKintosh sent her youngest son along with the blacksmith[1] and two other retainers to watch the road from Inverness. Sure enough, during the night several hundred Hanoverian troops were detected marching down the road. The Mackintosh defenders started beating their swords on rocks, jumping from place to place and shouting the war cries of different clans in the Chattan Confederation. Thinking that they had been ambushed, the British troops retreated to Inverness, an event known as the Rout of Moy. There was only one casualty of this incident, the piper for the Hanoverian troops, possibly a McCrimmon of the famous MacCrimmon piping family, was killed.
