Guide

Trip Info

Step back in time to a wet and windy day on 16th April 1746 when the last pitched battle on British soil was fought between the Jacobites led by Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Hanoverian troops with the Duke of Cumberland at their head. This tour will take you to the important points on the battlefield itself and give you an insight into that fateful day that saw hundreds killed and the Jacobite dreams to seize the British Crown shattered.

You will hear much more than the historical facts about this battle – a retelling of the human stories of the battle and its aftermath, as well as talking about the impact it had on Highland-life and British history.
