This chapter considers the immediate impact of the Union, and its failure to deliver what was promised. The nature of post-Union patriotism and anti-Unionism are explored. The basis of support in Scotland for the Jacobites is investigated, while attention too is drawn to the strength of commitment there was to the Union and its corollary the Hanoverian succession during the Jacobite rising of 1715-16.
