Prince Charlie's Beach, Loch nan Uamh

Prince Charles Edward Stewart landed on the shores of Loch nan Uamh, Arisaig, in the summer of 1745, in the last attempt to reinstate the exiled Stewarts on the throne of Great Britain and Ireland. After the defeat at Culloden in 1746, the prince went on the run in the Highlands and Islands for five months. He eventually returned to Loch nan Uamh, boarded a frigate, and sailed to safety in France, never to return. This photograph dates from the first half of the 20th century. It shows the beach from where the prince traditionally departed.
