Loch Shiel, with monument where Stuart standard was raised, 1745

Loch Shiel stretches 20 miles south west from Glenfinnan to Acharacle, only 2 miles from the sea. The loch is the fourth longest in Scotland, after Loch Ness, Loch Lomond and Loch Awe.

Bonnie Prince Charlie landed at the north end of Loch Shiel at Glenfinnan on the 19th August 1745 and raised his standard, marking the beginning of the 1745 Jacobite Rising. The Glenfinnan Monument was erected by Alexander MacDonald of Glenaladale in 1815 in memory of the clans who had fought and died for the Jacobite cause.
