Discovering Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites

Discovering Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites

The National Trust for Scotland, National Museum of Scotland, the Palace of Holyroodhouse and Historic Scotland have joined forces to make it easier for groups and FITs to discover Scotland's most famous Jacobite sites.

The story of Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) and the Jacobites is embedded in Scotland's rich and turbulent history, resonating across the centuries. This enduring fascination now has global appeal sparked by the TV adaptation of Diana Gabaldon's internationally acclaimed Outlander novels.
