The bothy was the birthplace of James Stewart (James of the Glen) who was hung at Cnap a’Chaolais near Ballachulish in 1752 for the murder of Colin Campbell (the Red Fox), an official of the British Government- a murder that he did not commit. This event formed the basis of Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel, Kidnapped.
