Don’t miss our Visitor Centre’s fascinating exhibition about the Jacobite Rising of 1745 and its leader Prince Charles Edward Stuart.

Presented in English and Gaelic, through artefacts, audio guides and an intricate model of the Glenfinnan Gathering, you’ll be immersed in that moment on 19 August when the ’45 began.
