Waiting Times @ Borrodale and Glenfinnan ….. 1745

The Prince waited three and a half weeks, first at Borrodale House and later at Kinlochmoidart House, to be certain he would have sufficient support and could raise his Standard at Glenfinnan on August 19th … but even when he arrived at Glenfinnan his waiting was still not over! He arrived well before noon but Cameron and his Highlanders did not get there before 3 pm … But come they did and the campaign was on!
