In 1860 the Queen visited Edinburgh and the Marquess led the Grand Review of the Volunteer Forces in Scotland. These tables were among the Holyrood furnishings removed that year to the Marquess' Perthshire estate at Taymouth Castle. Part of the Palace was refurnished in the 1740s under the direction of the architect William Adam, and the Young Pretender (Bonnie Prince Charlie) held court there in 1745, followed shortly afterwards by the Duke of Cumberland. It is possible that these furnishings were prized because of their historical associations with the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745.
