THE SEABOARD OF SKYE, BY PORTREE AND A HIDING PLACE OF PRINCE CHARLIE

THE SEABOARD OF SKYE, BY PORTREE AND A HIDING PLACE OF PRINCE CHARLIE

After the battle of Culloden Prince Charlie, with a huge price upon his head, sought refuge here, there and everywhere in the western Highlands, where not even the humblest and poorest clansman would betray him. In due time he crossed from the mainland to Portree, in Skye, and on the grand, precipitous seaboard of that island found temporary lodging in a cave. This is situated just behind the second of the great natural buttresses shown in the photograph, and is still pointed out as Prince Charlie's cave.
