PRINCE CHARLIE'S WANDERINGS: AT REST IN THE CAVE OF ROBERT BEAN SEAN

PRINCE CHARLIE'S WANDERINGS: AT REST IN THE CAVE OF ROBERT BEAN SEAN

In the summer of 1746 Prince Charlie sought to escape from the Hebrides to the mainland, and was enabled by the heroic effort of Flora Macdonald to do so. Once there, however, he found no shelter save in the woods and hills. Cumberland's men were all round him, and but for the devotion of his Highland friends, he must have been taken. Often he slept in a cave, and the well-known painting by J. Lockhart Bogle, reproduced in this photograph, shows one of these occasions.
