The activities of the Jacobites and their enemies, the supporters of the kings and queens who supplanted the Stuart dynasty, have left many traces. The popular image of Scotland is full of things from, or inspired by, the Jacobite period of 1688 to 1800.

You can still visit the battlefields, castles, houses and the streets where all this history happened. Museums, art galleries, libraries and archives contain collections of documents, weapons, costume and art of the period and the centuries since. There is so much to see.
