The Castle Hunter Hits the Jacobite Trail

Bonnie Prince Charlie and all that: The Scotlanders take on the Jacobite Trail challenge


We all know they had a Bonnie Prince, but who really were the Jacobites? The latest Scotlanders expedition brought us to almost every corner of Scotland in search of their stories. Outlander has brought the Risings to the international stage in spectacular fashion, with visitor numbers already reaching all-time highs at certain filming sites. In that spirit we took to the Jacobite Trail, a new network of 26 sites with connections to all eras and sides of the Jacobite Risings. From war-torn castles and somber battlefields to marvels of nature like Glencoe, it’s a marvellous journey.
