In 2015 Traquair commemorated the 300th anniversary of the 1715 Jacobite Rising in which family members played their part.

This exhibition tells the full story of the family’s involvement in the Jacobite movement from its beginnings in 1688, when the Catholic Stuart monarchy was forced into exile in France, to its ending on 16 April 1746 with the defeat of the Jacobite forces at the Battle of Culloden… and on into the 19th century with the family’s continuing adherence to the Jacobite cause.
