This Bonnie Prince Charlie monument is in the village of Arivruach, Lochs - on the main A857 road between Stornoway and Tarbert to mark where he landed following the Battle of Culloden.

This is what it says on the plaque; 

"On 4th May 1746 Charles Edward Stuart landed here while on the run having sailed from Scalpay. It was 18 days after the disastrous battle of Culloden where over 1200 highlanders had died. He travelled on foot from here to Arnish where he was given shelter by Lady Kiloun. He then sailed south to Eilean Lubhard with a massive price of £30,000 on his head. It is to the eternal honour of all Hebrideans that regardless of their loyalties he was not betrayed to the authorities".

Find out more about Bonnie Prince Charles and his Hebridean escapades on the Bonnie Prince Charlie Trail.
