In 1743, James Francis Edward, Prince of Wales, son of deposed King James II of England and Ireland and VII of Scotland decides he is too old to return to England to reclaim the English, Scottish and Irish crowns.

The character of Kinlochmoidart (Herbert Lomas) is listed in the final credits as Kinloch Moidart implying that is the character's given and family names. It is actually one word Kinlochmoidart. The correct name of the character is Donald MacDonald 4th Chief of the MacDonalds of Kinlochmoidart. Like other MacDonald chiefs, e.g. Sleat, Keppoch, Glengarry, Kinlochmoidart took his familiar name from the location of his clan. See more »
This movie is excellent - I've been looking for a copy for ages but do not know where to purchase it from. Can you help! I am very interested in Scottish History and find this movie contains all the ingredients I enjoy in a movie. Prince Charles of Scotland was the rightful heir to the throne of England but was duped out of the throne by his English relatives. He was a descendant of James VI of Scotland and I of England which gave him title to the throne of England. That is why he attempted to get the throne back by force. He nearly succeeded but his Army was too small and the English loyalties were elsewhere. They didn't want a Scottish King sitting on the English throne. That would have been anti-English.
