Cocknammon Rock is a fictional rock formation in the Scottish Highlands that was well-situated for ambushes. Claire recalls Frank telling her that the British used the high ground to lay in ambush for Scottish rebels or brigands. Claire warns Jamie of this and the Scots are able to avoid a trap, fighting off the Redcoats, although Jamie is shot. During the battle, Claire attempts to escape the Scots, but is recaptured by Jamie.[1]

In Gaelic, Cocknammon Rock is Clach a’ Choillich.[2]
