Bonnie Prince Charlie's Cave
Bonnie Prince Charlie's Cave
This is one of the many caves associated with Bonnie Prince Charlie. When first he landed on the mainland he set up his headquarters at Borrodale House, the home of Angus MacDonald of Borrodale half a mile from here. Following the disaster at Culloden when roaming the highlands as a fugitive he again sought the help of Angus.In July 1746 he took refuge here and again in September prior to escaping aboard the French privateer, 'L'Heureux' on the 19th September from Loch nan Uamh a few miles away. Appropriately my companion was a MacDonald!
