Will Ye No' Come Back Again?

We have now reached the end of our course, Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites.

We have travelled a long way, from the Union of the crowns in 1603, with James VI and I, down through the Stuart family tree to the last hope of the Jacobites – Prince Charles Edward Stuart and his brother, Prince Henry Benedict.

Thank you for choosing to take part in the course and for your contributions throughout the course.

We’ve called this last section after a song – ‘Will Ye No’ Come Back Again’, which is a song attributed to Lady Nairne, Carolina Oliphant – from the loyal Jacobite Oliphant family. You can find the lyrics and automatically download a sound file at this link.

We hope that this course has whetted your appetite to find out more about the Stuart dynasty, Prince Charles Edward and the Jacobite campaigns.

You will also find a range of books available online from the Museum shop.

What’s next?

The course will remain open for a few more weeks to allow everyone time to finish and exchange thoughts – but you may notice that the Course Team are no longer around to answer any questions! If you would like to retain access to all of the course material after it ends, and receive a Certificate of Achievement when you are eligible, then you can upgrade your course.

Thanks again for accompanying us as we retraced this Jacobite history.
