Decided to rally the royalists of the north-east lowlands and the highlands. Won 6 victories 1644-5, aimed to establish a royalist regime after Kilsyth but had to flee back to the highlands after defeat at Philiphaugh. Victories weren't enough to bring him support. Made lieutenant-governor and captain-general 1645. Admired in Europe for his victories, 1645-9. Authorised by Charles II to negotiate with all kings and princes for military aid 1649, travelled widely in Europe. Occupied the Orkneys 1649, to pose a military threat and force the covenanters into negotiations with the King. Order of the Garter 1649.
