Nunton House and Stories of the Prince

Tommy Macdonald has added to the store of local tales about Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Hebridean adventures in a conversation with Donald MacPhee, who renovated and now runs the Nunton House Hostel.

Here is where Flora Macdonald, Lady Clanranald, and other local notables planned the escape “over the sea to Skye”.

The “big house” has changed in function and ownership many times since those days, with Donald’s part of it now given over to accommodating tourists and visitors, but, even in the latest renovation, some tantalising hints and clues came to light about what life may have been like in the immediate aftermath of Culloden.

Listen to Tommy and Donald’s fireside chat here:


More stories, and perhaps a song or two, will be added to the collection in the coming weeks.
