Bloody Scotland
Bloody Scotland
Bloody Scotland: crime in 19th century Scotland. From the Borders to the Northern Isles, crime was never far away. Edinburgh, with its reputation for polite decorum was also the scene of poisoning and savagery; the streets of Dundee and Glasgow harboured thieves and muggers while the villages of coast and country hid wild men and vicious women. Even the seas were not safe, with pirates burying their treasure on the beaches of the Hebrides.
