About Jacobite Secrets

It wasn't just men who supported the Jacobite uprisings.

Come along and meet a secret Jacobite lady and hear her tales of the 1715 and 1745 Risings, and the arrival of Bonnie Prince Charlie in Edinburgh.

The Jacobite cause divided families, including hers. Come along and hear her story.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Jacobite Secrets are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
