Flora MacDonald’s name is forever linked with Bonnie Prince Charlie. Following his defeat at Culloden on 16 April 1746, the prince fled to the Hebrides. Due to Flora’s cunning plan to disguise him as her Irish maid Betty Burke, the prince evaded the Hanoverians and crossed ‘over the sea to Skye’ en route to France. #NTSGreatScots
