In 1745, Prince Charles Edward Stuart raised his standard at Glenfinnan, and began his attempt to reclaim the throne for his father, James Stuart. This was the start of the 1745 Jacobite Rising, which ultimately ended in failure at the Battle of Culloden. The Glenfinnan Monument was erected in 1815, in tribute to the clansmen who died for the cause.
