The British people's greatest day: Cynics will say it's time to move on. But today raise a glass to the sheer ingenuity, courage and bloody mindedness of Britons like Stan Hollis, who turned a potential disaster into awesome victory


The course of British, European and world history was changed here at Culloden on 16 April 1746. It was here that the Jacobite army fought to reclaim the throne of Britain from the Hanoverians for a Stuart king


Battle of Culloden, 1746. One of the most successful and well disciplined regiments in the Jacobite Army, was raised from the towns and countryside of Angus, and that was Lord David Ogilvie’s cavalry (son of the Earl of Airlie.) This regiment retired in good order and intact from the field of Culloden and disbanded in the Glens of North Angus with their Colours which can be seen in the McManus Gallery's.
