    Lochcarron is a village in the Highlands of Scotland. In September 1846, a local newspaper reported on a terrible incident which happened there. They told of two lunatic brothers who lived in Lochcarron. They stated that one of the brothers grabbed hold of an axe with the intent of using it upon his mother. At the time, the other brother was bound up in the house and so the mother let him loose so that he would stop the first brother from attacking her with the axe. According to the report of the time the two madmen fought furiously and that one having torn the other brother to pieces and killing him was then bound up again in the house and remained like that for many years.

    Falsely reported

    As an act had been passed which meant that the parish had to pay for anyone who was considered to be a so called lunatic to be cared for in an asylum, the newspaper report caused a great deal of fuss. This in turn meant that the procurator- fiscal questioned the situation with the inspector of the poor for Lochcarron. The inspector then declared that the newspaper had falsely reported the situation and the poor man was looked after properly by his sister. In fact, he said that the writer of the article had never seen the man but he, the inspector, had recently visited him and he was well looked after and healthy. At this point, we have to observe that one of the parties is attacking negligibly.

    The newspaper had to investigate the inspector’s published statement further and did so. They found out that two brothers in one family were afflicted with insanity. One of the brothers died during an epilepsy attack and the other who was about fifty years of age had been bound and neglected for a period of fifteen years. The case then came to the attention of Sheriff Cameron of Dingwall who took it upon himself to visit the hut.

    He was nude and chained to a bed post

    He discovered that Alex Maclennan was chained by the leg to the post of a wooden bed in a state of nudity in a miserable hut occupied by his sister who attended him. He wrote a letter of what he found on his visit and the newspaper published it. He spoke of what a disgrace it was to the country. The newspaper further commented on the fact that the parish of Lochcarron was not doing their duty and if the situation continued, it could only be hoped that the Board of Supervision would step in and do theirs.
