The Jacobite rebellion


The Tartan army defeated English armies at Stirlingshire and Falkirk and laid siege to Stirling Castle. During this Castle siege, many Clansmen returned to their homes depleting the Tartan army to a dangerous level.


Their basic way of life, farming in the Highlands, meant that Clansmen could not endure long periods away from home, as their families would starve without their support. With a large English force again marching into Scotland, the remaining Tartan army split, retreated and then reunited at Inverness.


1746 (Wednesday 16th April) The Jacobites and their Tartan army were finally defeated at the battle of Culloden Moor, where no prisoners were taken by the English army, they executed everyone they captured.


Following this defeat, the Highland Clan villages were also destroyed, possessions seized and culture violated by the new laws of not to speak Gaelic, not to wear tartan, own weapons of any sort, play bagpipes and the Clan Chiefs, to now have no authority over the basic Clan social structure.


A unified fight for an independent Scotland with it's own Royal family, was now at an end and Scotland eventually became part of the United Kingdom.
