MacDonald specialised in painting Jacobite subjects, the romance of which still colours our view of this period today.

After the defeat of the Jacobite Uprising at Culloden in April 1746, Bonnie Prince Charlie spent five months being pursued across the Highlands. This shows him sailing to exile in September 1746.
