Colonel Anne Farquharson, born at Invercauld, a stone’s throw from Braemar Castle, was a real-life heroine of the 1745 Jacobite Rising, She defied her husband the Laird of Mackintosh and raised troops for Bonnie Prince Charlie. Her quick-thinking saved the Prince’s life at the Rout of Moy, while her warrior-lover Macgillivray died at the bloody battle of Culloden. Imprisoned by the Duke of Cumberland, she survived to tell the tale. A true story of passion, raw courage and female independence in a turbulent Scotland. Come and celebrate her 300th anniversary with us, and visit the newly refurbished Braemar Castle.
