Today is the anniversary of the Battle of Glenshiel in 1719. Well, it is if we forget the change in the calendar but we’ll not go into that now. Thought I would give my article on what might be called the forgotten Jacobite Rising another wee whirl. It was published in Historia magazine on the 300th anniversary of the battle in 2019. Also known as the Little Rising, it featured Spanish soldiers sailing to Scotland to fight in support of the Jacobites, the Protestant Wind and the blowing up of Eilean Donan Castle. It was rebuilt much, much later, fortunately in time for Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod to ride out of it in Highlander.
