Charlie, Meg and Me Summary

Charlie, Meg and Me: An epic 530 mile walk recreating Bonnie Prince Charlie's escape after the disaster of Culloden by Gregor Ewing

For the first time, Bonnie Prince Charlie's arduous escape of 1746 has been recreated in a single journey. The author, along with his faithful border collie Meg, retraces the Prince's epic 530 mile walk through remote wilderness, hidden glens, modern day roads and uninhabited islands.

Gregor Ewing tells the Prince's story alongside the trials of his own present day journey, whilst reflecting on the plight of the highlanders who, despite everything, loyally protected their rightful prince. The author's love of history and the landscape in which he travels shines through in this modern day adventure.

Charlie, Meg and Me Reviews

In classic, and accomplished, travel-writing style, Ewing nourishes the reader (the armchair walker) all along the way with titbits of history and hearsay, or lore and legend, of introspection and insight. NORTHWORDS NOW

About Gregor Ewing

GREGOR EWING has combined his passion for the outdoors with his love of Scottish history in undertaking the six-week journey that led to Charlie, Meg and Me. Always looking to widen his knowledge of Scotland's past, he is as happy trawling through a tome by a warm fire as he is exploring ruins and battlefields. His outdoor exploits were initially a means of gaining fitness, but after completing the Duke of Edinburgh award and steadily ticking of Munros, he has come to appreciate the beauty and freedom of Scotland's remote landscapes more than ever. Gregor is based in Falkirk, where he works in property management and lives with his wife, Nicola, their three daughters, Sophie, Kara and Abbie, and their dogs, Meg and Ailsa.
