THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER PERFECT FOR FANS OF OUTLANDER

The true story of one of Scotland’s most notorious and romantic heroes.

He was a spy, a clan-chief, a traitor. A polyglot, a deserter and a man of philosophy.

Simon Fraser, Lord Lovat, was the last of the great Scottish chiefs – and the last nobleman executed for treason. In life, his wit, ambition and dubious sense of morality kept him in the thick of political intrigue. With a taste for risk and determined to make his fortune, Lovat made pacts with Catholics and Protestants, Scots and Englishmen.

Lovat found his famous end a turncoat and a martyr: he threw himself in with the ‘45 rebellion and fought for Prince Charles against the crown. His execution in Tower Hill, at the age of 80, was the last of its kind.

Lovat was one of Scotland’s most notorious and romantic figures: a man whose loyalty had no home, whose sword had a price. This is the swashbuckling account of his life, and a brilliant portrayal of nation in revolt.

‘Sarah Fraser deserves to be acclaimed as a notable biographer ... This is a brave and meaty book tells this remarkable tale with admirable patience, industry and understanding’ Spectator

‘A vivid and fascinating biography of a quirky aristocrat’ Evening Standard

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. Saltire First Scottish Book of the Year 2012 The notorious and romantic story of Lord Lovat: double-agent, spy, the most famous supporter of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the last nobleman to be executed for treason. For all fans of Ben MacIntyre and C.J. Sansom, a great non-fiction historical adventure. Lord Lovat was a spy, clan-chief, traitor, polyglot, deserter and philosopher. His wit, ambition and dubious morality thrust him repeatedly into the thick of political intrigue. A treacherous turncoat, and yet a martyr for Bonnie Prince Charlie's dreams to retake the British throne, Lovat conjured a legend: a man whose loyalty had no home, whose sword had a price, and whose taste for risks led him into pacts with Catholics and Protestants, Scots and Englishmen. The last nobleman to be executed for treason, Lovat was one of Scotland's most notorious and romantic figures, and this swashbuckling account of his life creates an extraordinary portrayal of a nation in revolt. As Sarah Fraser argues, the defeat at Culloden led directly to the end of traditional Gaelic civilization; to the brutal clearances and 'pacification' of the Highlands which followed and the lost civilisations of Scotland that were destroyed after 1745 by English repression. THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER PERFECT FOR FANS OF OUTLANDER The true story of one of Scotland's most notorious and romantic heroes.
