Framed amid typically spectacular Highland scenery at the head of Loch Shiel with sweeping glens as a backdrop, stands this poignant monument to the final Jacobite Rising. The lone kilted highlander atop the 18m high column surveys the land, where the Highland way of life was soon to be cruelly extinguished.

A Visitor Centre tells the full story of the ’45. Come along, take in the view and prepared to be stirred by this tumultuous chapter in Scotland’s history which could well have been a global turning point.

A new exhibition was unveiled at Glenfinnan Visitor Centre in April 2013. View an image gallery of the new bilingual interpretation or take an interactive 360 degree tour.
