Loch Shiel and Bonnie Prince Charlie

Scotland in a week!

The area around Loch Shiel is well-known since it was here that Bonnie Prince Charlie rallied his clansmen and supporters in preparation for the Jacobite Rising of 1745.  A striking monument at Glenfinnan commemorates the spot where Prince Charles raised his Royal Standard and began his campaign.  So began the rebellion that was to end in failure eight months later at the Battle of Culloden (16 April 1746).
