The Battle of Glen Shiel. Illustration by Dan Escott

11 June is the anniversary of the Battle of Glen Shiel, fought during the Jacobite Rising in 1719. The Jacobite uprisings in the late 17th and early 18th centuries were aimed at restoring James VII to the throne of Scotland. The Battle of Glen Shiel was a decisive battle, ending in the defeat of the Jacobites, although they rose again in 1744-45 with Bonnie Prince Charlie (the Young Pretender) at their head.

Many more pictures from the days of the Jacobite risings, including the Battle of Culloden, can be found here. A wide variety of illustrations relating to the history, customs and wildlife of Scotland can be seen at the following link.
