#OnThisDay in 1689, 1st Viscount Dundee led the #Jacobites in a military campaign, defeating William and Mary’s army at the Battle of #Killiecrankie in 1689.

Since the 1630's Scotland had been going through an intense religious and political upheaval, that would continue for years to come, emerging in the 1715 and 1719 Rebellions before finally ending at #Culloden at the end of the 1745 Uprising.

Dr Matthias Wivel, curator of 16th-century paintings at the National Gallery in London, visited Haddo House to view 16th-century masterpiece 'The Haddo Madonna'
Dr Wivel was sufficiently enthusiastic about the picture that he has proposed it goes to the National Gallery in London for further research. This will also give an opportunity for other scholars working in this field to see and comment on this very interesting painting.
Over the next 12 months, The National Trust for Scotland will be sharing behind-the-scenes insights on the progress of the research on this painting, which we hope may be by the Renaissance artist Raphael.
Visit Haddo House and view 'The Haddo Madonna' before it goes to London later this year: https://www.nts.org.uk/Visit/Haddo-House/
