Tour Scotland Photograph Arisaig


Tour Scotland photograph of Arisaig, a village in Lochaber, on the West coast of the Scottish Highlands of Scotland. On 20 September 1746 Bonnie Prince Charlie left Scotland for France from a place near the village following the failure of the Jacobite rising of 1745. In 1770 the Scottish Gaelic poet Alasdair Mac Mhaighstir Alasdair died in Arisaig and was buried in the village's Roman Catholic cemetery. Emigrants from this area founded Arisaig, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1785. During the Second World War, the area was taken over by the Special Operations Executive to train agents for missions in Occupied Europe.
