Jacobites night out

A group of re-enactors have recreated a night march from Culloden to the outskirts of Nairn, in an attempt to experience for themselves the reality of the end of the Jacobite campaign in 1746. Not all of them made it back!

The BBC has a report on the march at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/highlands_and_islands/8001480.stm and a video report at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/8002781.stm.
