Class talk to The 1745 Association


In this talk, Glen MacDonald tells the story behind The 1745 Association's two new plaques at Monkstadt House on the Isle of Skye. In late June 1746, the fugitive Charles Edward Stuart landed on the Isle of Skye in the company of Flora MacDonald seeking refuge and support from the Chief of the Macdonalds of Skye and his wife at Monkstadt House. Glen, who managed and led the project to erect the plaques, tells the story of how this plan nearly went badly awry and provides a fascinating insight into the attitude and tortuously convoluted approach of the Skye chiefs towards the Rising.

Best wishes for a happy Christmas and a better New Year.
