A few Loudoun's went down to Derby back in 1999 to take part in the BONNIE PRINCE CHARLIE WEEKEND organised by the Charles Edward Stuart Society, and after beer-drenched consultations before returning the following year, we came to a decision as to the 18th C. identity of Loudoun's (since we didn't wish be on the Government side), because the lovely name of Strathbogie's had already been taken by friends across the big pond, we arrived at an even more apt and fitting name for us: Glenbucket's Regiment, in short, Glenbucket (just think what it rhymes with….)
Here's a few bits about them which Allan Bryan-Tansley has kindly found out, followed by some more which I managed to extract from a few of my sources. If anybody can find out more about the gallant Glenbucket, please don't keep it to yourselves but send it to us!!
We accurately as possible, portray the Regiment of Major General John Gordon of Glenbucket, circ. 1745-46.
Are you looking for a re-enactment group to bring your event alive?
If so Glenbucket's can bring a standard of 18th century re-enactment rarely found in Scotland. as well as being a black powder unit and therefore equipped with firing muskets, we also have access to a cannon which can literally bring a bang to your event.
Feel free to contact us with any queries you may have......
Are you looking for a unique hobby that literally jumps you back in time?
Then you will find our group a warm and welcoming one, willing to share expertise and knowledge to the newcommer as well as offering them the delights of our social life.
