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 shows Sarah James-Gaukroger standing in front of a rock face at Loch nan Uamh, with a small cave entrance to the left. This cave may have been one of the hiding places of the prince, before he left for France.
