As we continue to develop the website, we’re adding new features that will help you find your way around the history of the battle and its place in the wider narrative of the Jacobite wars.

These include a series of timelines, designed to explain how all these complex events fit together, and now also a new interactive battle map which allows you to click through each regiment on the Order of Battle!

Have a look and see what new information you can uncover:

The Armies – Battle of Prestonpans 1745

We’ve also added links to the regimental museums and clan societies which help keep the heritage of those who fought at Prestonpans alive.

All the historical information on this site can be found, unsurprisingly enough, under the HISTORY tab on the header menu.
