They stopped at the inn of Feshie to water the horses, and whilst the bits were out of their mouths, a herd of pigs dashed round the corner of the inn, and knocking down a ladder leaning against the wall, startled the horses, who set off at full speed towards the bridge over the Feshie ; the bridge had no parapets, the wheels went over the side, and phaeton and all fell over down the steep rocky banks to the bed of the river. The landlord, who had rushed after, arrived in time to save the laird by catching hold of his heel as he was disappearing over the brink; he was severely injured, but Mrs Ironside was killed on the spot. Mrs Grant, with her baby, Eliza, was in another carriage, and witnessed the accident ; it is still remembered in the country- side how the poor lady scrambled down through the shrubs and rocks, crying on her mother, to find her lying dead below.1
