Living History: Reenacting Events from Scotland's Past

The Jacobite Rebellion of 1745-1746 took place under the command of Prince Charles Edward Stuart, and was the last attempt of the Stuarts to reclaim the throne of Great Britain and Ireland. This rebellion threw Scotland into such turmoil that it effectively ended the Highland Clan system as it had existed for centuries. After the rebellion Highland dress and weapons were banned, Clan Chiefs lost authority, Clan lands were broken up and cleared, clansmen were expelled, and sheep started filling the Highlands. The Battle of Culloden was essentially the last gasp of the old Highland/Celtic world.

As a confederation of living historians, we come together each year to recreate this period in history and bring it to life for ourselves and the general public.
