  • Scope and Contents

    In 1738, Hugh MacLeod, 2nd of Geanies, re-opened the case of his uncle, Neil, 9th of Assynt, to recover the lands of Assynt lost following Neil's reputed betrayal of James Graham, Marquess of Montrose in 1650. The documents relate mainly to Hugh MacLeod's case, 1738-1763, being mostly legal papers, but including the petition of Neil MacLeod to General Monck of 1654. There are also papers concerning the case in the hand of Donald MacLeod, 3rd of Geanies.
