Honours EvenBook - 1995
In 1649 Charles II left his exile in the Netherlands and sailed to Scotland. Arriving at the small fishing village of Garmouth, he faced a mixed reception from the minister of the Kirk.
The exiled king was to remain in Scotland for a year, learning more about his northern subjects, while the English tried to adjust to life under the puritanical heel of the Lord Protector, Oliver Cromwell.
But Cromwell was soon to turn his attentions to matters north of the border. He coveted the Honours of Scotland - the crown, sceptres and sword-of-sate - symbols of hope and the nations's honour. And so the young men of Scotland were about to be forced into battle to ensure that the Honours were saved.
