This is the story of the first Jacobite Rising - not the 1715 rebellion but that of the summer of 1689. Less that a year after the arrival of William of Orange in Britain, an army of Gaels - Lochiel, Glengarry, Sir Donald of Sleat, MacLean of Duart and others - rallied for the cause in Lochaber under the leadership of "Bonnie Dundee". The clansmen had lost none of their fighting skills and, reviving Montrose's brilliant Highland charge, they achieved signal victory at Killiecrankie. Although it cost him his life, the memory of the charismatic Dundee and that famous battle is celebrated yet in memory and song. The author aims to bring the story to life through recourse to contemporary sources - letters, memoirs and, in particular, poetry in Latin, Scots and Gaelic - and gives a detailed account of the leaders and their clansmen and how and why they marched to Killiecrankie.
