Overview

The quashing of the Jacobite Rising of 1745 saw an end to the ambitions
of the exiled house of Stuart. But somehow the young pretender, Prince
Charles Edward, otherwise known as Bonnie Prince Charlie, manage to
avoid arrest.

For six extraordinary months the handsome young prince, often starving,
sometimes barefoot and in rags, ranged the Western Highlands and the
Outer and Inner Hebrides, hiding, lurking, fleeing.

Despite dire threats of punishment to all who might aid and abet him,
the royal fugitive was hidden by brave and trusty supporters, each of
whom could have betrayed him for the massive £30,000 reward offered by
the English.

This story stands as a tribute to the loyalty and staunch courage of the
Highland clansfolk, from master of Scottish history Nigel Tranter.
