The hanging place at Cnap a ChaolaisIf you ever get the chance to visit the Appin area take a journey on the “Trail of The Last Clansman” starting in Glen Duror at the birthplace of Stewart of Acharn. It takes you to all the places associated with this piece of so called justice. The only missing link unbelievably is the chapel and burial ground of Keil (on private ground) where his bones are interred in a corner of the ruined chapel marked by a bronze plaque.
Birthplace of Stewart of Acharn (is that "Scottish Not British" stickers I see??)
Cairn marking the spot where Campbell of Glenure met his death at Lettermore
The chapel at Keil where the bones of Seumas a Ghlinne were finally interred

The irony of it all is the treatment of those of the local population of whom many had taken up arms in the Jacobite cause. Most were to be cleared or evicted by the descendants of the very Clan leaders that they followed. Those very same Clan leaders who had to quote from a well known song “donned their saxon coats”
The Sabhal mor Ostaig have done an excellent job in making available many of the old written studies from the late 1800's relating to the history of the Gael and here is a worthwhile link for future reference containing many excellent pieces of research.

A week of much protest with photos coming in from all over Scotland. The Purcell saga and the Glasgow City Labour Councils part in its cover up were marked by a show of a large End London Rule banner in George Square.
The message can be seen all over Scotland....
Our friends at the Am Buidheann Dubh have also been busy and there is no age limit to Nationalism and standing for your Nation.
On Saturday EBC Scotland reported that the Labour Party’s spring pre-election conference at the SECC in Glasgow was graced by the banners of protest ; END LONDON RULE.
As the word spreads the height that Britain’s flag flies in Scotland is now on the way down…….END LONDON RULE……………..FREE SCOTLAND...........
