The Highlands in the years immediately following Culloden were an explosive mixture of clan rivalry and Jacobite-Hanoverian enmity. Nevertheless, the murder in 1752 of Colin Campbell and subsequent hanging of James Stewart became a cause celebre, primarily because the wrong man had gone to the gallows. Using contemporary letters and witness statements, this book re-examines the facts and invites readers to draw their own conclusions about a 255 year-old murder mystery.
