Product Description

On July 23, 1745, Bonnie Prince Charlie landed on the Isle of Eriskay with seven men and proceeded to capture Scotland. Over the following months, he almost succeeded in wrestling the British crown from Hanoverian cousins. Clansmen and family members fought each other in the last battles to take place on British soil. These battles culminated in the tragedy of Culloden.

Fitzroy Maclean recounts the extraordinary and romantic history of the Highland clans from their earliest Celtic origins to Robert the Bruce; from the wars of independence, including Bannockburn and Flodden, to the Jacobite Risings of the eighteenth century and the nineteenth-century Clearances; from Mary, Queen of Scots to the modern day. Highlanders sheds light on the motivation and character of the clans and brings to vivid life their highly dramatic stories. Never before has there been such a wide and well-balanced view of Highland history.
