He tried to hold on to his estates by embracing Catholicism and offering to oppose his father's invasion. He therfore left for the Dutch Republic and thereafter accompanied William of Orange on his British Expedition in 1688-1689. Once in Scotland he took his place in the Scottish Convention of Estates as Earl of Argyll. He also undertook to extirpate the MacDonalds of Glencoe in 1692. He was created Duke of Argyll in June 1701.
