David Lloyd George and a Ghillie crossing wooden bridge

Taken in 1921, this photograph shows Prime Minister, David Lloyd George (left), crossing the Gruinard River whilst out walking; Loch na Sealga can be seen on the left. He is accompanied by a ghillie, Donald MacNicol.

Lloyd George was leader of the Liberal Party and Prime Minster of a National Coalition government from December 1916 to October 1922. The coalition comprised MPs from the Liberal and Conservative parties.

He liked to holiday at Flowerdale, near Gairloch and it was during this particular visit that he heard that Ireland had rejected the King and Empire and as a result, he called a meeting of the Cabinet at Inverness, the first time it had met outside London.
