This photograph was taken by Scottish photographer George Washington Wilson (1823-93) and was used to illustrate talks he gave on Highland history. The following text is taken from Washington Wilson's own lecture notes on the Jacobite Rising of 1745-46.

Capt. Campbell procured an invitation to dine at Drummond Castle, the beautiful residence of the Duke near Crieff, and had it surrounded during the dinner with troops. On rising from the table, he told the his grace that he was his prisoner. The Duke coolly, opened the door, as if courteously to allow his guests to precede him. But he immediately drew back, shut and locked the door, and escaped by a secret stair.
