A history enthusiast plans to retrace Bonnie Prince Charlie's escape after his defeat at Culloden in 1746. Gregor Ewing, 41, from Falkirk, expects to take six weeks to complete his walk through the north west Highlands, Western Isles and Skye. He hopes to set off on his trek from Culloden battlefield, near Inverness, on Thursday morning.
Mr Ewing has researched his route using a number of historic accounts of Prince Charles Edward Stuart's journey. His sources include W B Blaikie's Itinerary of Prince Charles Edward Stuart from His Landing in Scotland July, 1745 to His Departure in September 1746.
