The Jacobites, the '45 & Culloden / Highland Clearances

During the Jacobites, the '45 & Culloden display your visiting Highlander in full plaid costume will discuss the true Civil War nature of the '45 uprising, taking a brief look at the earlier battles and history but mainly concentrating on Bonnie Prince Charlie's campaign in 1745/46 including Culloden and it's aftermath together with the lasting effects on Scottish life.

We also have a separate display covering Highland Life and the Highland Clearances.

Costumes and Weaponry of both the Jacobites & Hanovarian forces will be displayed and available for trying on and handling plus your pupils can challenge themselves to fold and don the feildeadh mor (great kilt). Folk music relating to the period may also feature.

A detailed display designed for older primary age groups, this topic requires the longer time slot afforded in the morning school timetable.
