"Erected 1911 to the memory of James Stewart of Acharn, or "James of the Glens", executed on this spot Nov. 8th 1757 for a crime of which he was not guilty"

Colin Campbell, the "Red Fox" of Glenure, was killed by a single shot on 14 May 1752. Most modern historians agree that "Seumas nan Gleann" did not commit the notorious Appin Murder. But in those headstrong times, only a few years after Culloden, a jury of Campbells found otherwise.
