In 1746, before Culloden, while Prince Charles was at Moy, Lord Loudon's Redcoats from Inverness planned a surprise capture attempt: but they were foiled by a ruse when Donald Fraser, the smith of Moy, and four men, lay in ambush and gave the impression of a much larger force. This Rout of Moy resulted in a Hanoverian retreat.
