Eriskay, in the Outer Hebrides, is remembered as the first place in Scotland where "Bonnie Prince Charlie" set foot in 1745; the island from which the "Song of the Hebrides" was collected; and the location of a real wreck in 1941 which was the inspiration for Compton Mackenzie's novel Whisky Galore! The island lies between Barra and South Uist in the Sound of Barra and its only village, Haun, has pretty whitewashed houses. The church, dwarfed by by Beinn Sciathan, standing above the harbour, has an altar shaped like the bow of a boat. The sandy cove of Prince Charlie's Bay to the west of the village, is where the "Young Pretender" landed.
