Scope and Contents

Story entitled 'Burns' collected from Angus Macniven, tailor, Cill Taigh an Uillt [Kirkton, Taynuilt, Earra GhĂ idheal/Argyllshire]. Much of the text is illegible owing to smudged pencil marks but of the text that can be distinguished this item would appear to involve a Campbell fleeing from the country after a number of murders. It has not been possible to make out the text which relates to Robert Burns.
