Pretty Young Rebel: The Life of Flora Macdonald
2-3pm Saturday 17 June
The year is 1746. The Jacobite rebellion has failed, Scotland is reeling in the aftermath of Culloden. On an island in the Outer Hebrides twenty-four-year-old Flora Macdonald is woken in the dead of night by a messenger with an urgent request… Award-winning biographer Flora Fraser shares the remarkable story of Flora Macdonald – a tale of daring, wit, struggle and survival.
Flora will be in conversation with historian Violet Moller and is, of course, the perfect person to write about Flora Macdonald.
