The Battle of Kringen (Norwegian: Slaget ved Kringen) involved an ambush by Norwegian peasant militia of Scottish mercenary soldiers who were on their way to enlist in the Swedish army for the Kalmar War. The battle has since become a part of folklore in Norway, giving names to local places in the Ottadalen valley. A longstanding misconception was that George Sinclair, a nephew of the George Sinclair, 5th Earl of Caithness was the commander of the forces; in fact, he was subordinate to Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Ramsay.

  • Slaget vid Kringen var en strid i bergspasset i Gudbrandsdalen nära Otta i Norge, mellan skotska legosoldater och norska bönder, under Kalmarkriget. En i Skottland för svensk räkning värvad trupp om 300-400 man sökte sig på sensommaren 1612 från Romsdalen bana sig väg till Sverige. Ankommen till Kringen, angreps den av norska bönder och blev så gott som till sista man nedgjord. Av de få fångarna dödades de flesta efteråt. En minnessten rest på platsen hyllar böndernas insats.
