The highlands of Scotland and more especially the clans that inhabited them have a romantic resonance and mystery almost unparelleled elsewhere. Tales of unimaginable savagery acted out against a panorama of the wildest and most beautiful scenery, but also characters of great gentleness, loyalty and culture. On 23 July, 1745 Bonnie Prince Charlie landed on the Island of Eriskay with just seven men and proceeded to capture Scotlan; in a series of brilliant battles over the following months, he almost succeeded in wrestling the British crown from his Hanoverian cousins, Clansmen and members of the same family fought against each other in the last battles to take place on British soil, culminating in tragedy of Culloden. Fitzroy Maclean recounts the extraordinary and romantic of the Highland clans, from their earliest Celtic origins to Robert the Bruce, the wars of independence and Bannockburn, from Flodden, Mary, Queen of Scots to the Jacobite Risings of the eighteenth century, to the nineteenth century Clearances and to the modern day.Reseña del editor:
The Highlands of Scotland, and more specifically the clans that inhabit them, have a romantic resonance and mystery. This history of the Highland clans includes an illustrated appendix of clan names, tartans, lands and principal branches.'
