Future curators of Kildonan Museum reveal ‘A Prince on the Run’

The Future Curators Group of Kildonan Museum are excited to be launching a new exhibition with material on-loan from National Museums of Scotland and Museum of the Isles at Armadale Castle and Gardens in Skye.

A Prince on the Run tells the story of how Bonnie Prince Charlie’s escape was aided by Flora MacDonald and reveals the ancestral ties between South Uist and Napoleonic France.

The display features gifts exchanged between Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora MacDonald as well as personal items of Jacques MacDonald, military leader of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. The Young Curators group have researched these items and have reflected upon their stories and meaning.

This is the first exhibition of the Future Curators Group and we hope there will be many more in the future. Come along and be inspired by what they’ve revealed!

The exhibition will open from Wednesday 17th of April 2019.
