Arisaig is a village in Lochaber, Inverness-shire, on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands. The word Arisaig means "the safe place" in the Scottish Gaelic language.HistoryOn 20 September 1746 Bonnie Prince Charlie left Scotland for France from a place near the village following the failure of the Jacobite rising of 1745. The site of his departure is marked by the Prince's Cairn, located at Loch nan Uamh to the east of Arisaig. In 1770 the Scottish Gaelic poet Alasdair Mac Mhaighstir Alasdair died in Arisaig and was buried in the village's Roman Catholic cemetery. Emigrants from this area founded Arisaig, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1785.During the Second World War the area was taken over by the Special Operations Executive to train agents for missions in Occupied Europe. Arisaig House, along with many others, was used as a training school. The Land, Sea and Islands Centre in the village has a display on the connection between the SOE and Arisaig.On 11 November 2009 a memorial to Czech and Slovak soldiers, who trained as SOE agents between 1943 and 1945, was unveiled in Arisaig.
