It's really quite remarkable that BPC landed in Moidart in July with only seven men and by September had captured Scotland's capital city. That's quite an amazing feat.

I'm no admirer of the man, he led the Highland Army to disaster in 1746 and abandoned what was left of his Highlanders to their fate at Ruthven Barracks after Culloden when he could have led them into the hills, but you have to give him credit for what he achieved in 1745.
