This year is the 300th anniversary of the 1715 Jacobite Rising. How do you think this will be commemorated? not just in Scotland. Some say this rising came the closest to ending the unpopular union of 1707. But how united was Scotland in 1715? and can we see the same divisions in 2015?

the standard raised by Mar on the 3rd of September 1715 proclaimed NO UNION. let's all celebrate that rising with the the very same NO UNION and unite Scotland against the unequal situation that is London rule. Will we celebrate?

Just to add to this post as tere is no edit function. Why is it the House of Hanover set up their pile a few miles down the road. The scenery? And on the nearest Saturday to the 6th of September when Mar raised his standard the descendants of the House of Hanover hold a highland games not far from that very spot its the Union flag that's raised. They celebrate.
