Jacobite Clans Ep.4: The Culloden Letters

Share this with your friends

The Jacobite Clans Podcast is back for episode 4, where Marketing Officer David McLeod, and Dr Nicky Small, Local History Officer, are discussing the story of Anthony Murray of Dollerie in a series of 19 family letters collected in the years 1745-1746, currently on display at the Jacobite Clans exhibition.

Dr Small takes us through these letters which show how families navigated the Jacobite era and made crucial decisions about whether to join Bonnie Prince Charlie or try to stay outside politics. The letters also show the local reaction to the Prince’s arrival, how news travelled at that time and lead to the tragic defeat at Culloden.

Jacobite Clans is an episode podcast series complimenting the Jacobite Clans exhibition at Perth Museum & Art Gallery.

The Jacobite Clan's podcast has been inspired by the Culture Perth and Kinross Jacobite Clan's Exhibition hosted over 2019 at Perth Museum and Art Gallery.
