Bonnie Prince Charlie on the Jacobite Trail

Follow in the footsteps of Bonnie Prince Charlie on the Jacobite Trail! We’ve teamed up with Historic Scotland, National Trust for Scotland and the Royal Collection Trust to bring you a guide to 26 of Scotland’s historic Jacobite sites. Delve into a fascinating period of loyalty, loss, exile, retribution and risings. Visit sites of victory and defeat and discover the ill-fated campaigns to restore the Stuart monarchy to the British throne. Even Bonnie Prince Charlie himself – aka Outlander actor Andrew Gower – thinks it’s a good idea!

Bonnie Prince Charlie & the Jacobites exhibition

‘Incredible… anyone who’s a fan of the show must come and see this!’ That’s what Outlander actor Andrew Gower had to say about our Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites exhibition when he visited last week.
