The Jacobite Officer is played by Matthew John Donnachie who is in fact a real life Jacobite Officer as he is Commodore to the Jacobite society “A Circle of Gentlemen” which dates from 1748.
A Circle host the world famous “Lament for Culloden” at Culloden house every year following the Commemoration service for the battle each year.
Matthew is a former pro musician and is currently playing the lead role for the forthcoming series “Highland Legends”.
A gifted speaker with an expert knowledge of the Jacobite risings, Matthew has become an extremely sought after speaker on the Scottish after dinner circuit.
He is hard to describe. Once met, he is never to be forgotten.
Blessed with a combination of wit, charm and swagger, then throw in some swashbuckling 18th century tartan styling.
The result is a visual epic that is unforgettable.
