ARISAIG IN INVERNESS-SHIRE, WHERE THE FRENCH SHIP LANDED THE PRINCE

ARISAIG IN INVERNESS-SHIRE, WHERE THE FRENCH SHIP LANDED THE PRINCE

On July 25, 1745, a French ship, the Doutelle, that had crept up the west coast of Scotland, anchored off Arisaig, a desolate Inverness-shire beach, and landed Prince Charles Edward without troops or guns or anything in the way of material support for his desperate-crusade. He had only his faith' in the righteousness of his cause and in the devotion of the Highland chiefs. Three of the latter waited on him the next day and, following the lead given by Lochiel, determined the immediate future of the enterprise.
