[edit] Information

AKA Bruadar a' Bhais Before he was hanged for murder in 1831, young Hugh Macleod was paraded through the streets of Inverness in chains, jeered by a 3,000-strong crowd. He was the only defendant in Scottish legal history whose trial had admitted the evidence of second sight. Macleod was a native of remote Assynt in Sutherland. A schoolteacher, he was driven by an obsession for fine clothes and a fondness for reckless living. When a popular travelling pedlar acquired a windfall, he became an easy target for Macleod. This extraordinary Scottish crime story is told in full - a murder that led to the exposure of a respected member of society, an investigation where ancient rituals were carried out and a trial where the only 'dream testimony' ever known in Scots jurisprudence was admitted by the Crown. The crime is considered from a 21st-century perspective, through expert contributors and drama reconstruction. It reveals how the people of a small Gaelic-speaking village took on a murder case themselves and discusses how today's forensics might still be challenged by it.
