Summary

Prince Charles Edward Stuart in Eriskay.

The contributor knows the house in Eriskay in which Prince Charles Edward Stuart slept. It belonged to a Cameron. The Prince's flower has grown there ever since he threw a seed from his pocket when he landed.

Neil MacEachen, a schoolteacher and supporter of the Prince, had to flee to France after his defeat and joined the army. He served under Napoleon as Marshall MacDonald (Duke of Tarentum). He still has descendants in the island.
