The Parish of Dunkeld - oh what a terrible parish!

I obtained a free CD last weekend with several traditional Scots music songs on it, which led me to buy an album by a band called Silly Wizards - and to then discover a fantastic traditional song based on a true story, The Parish of Dunkeld, which recalled how the parishioners hanged their own minister. A wee bit of digging though, soon discovered that it wasn't in Dunkeld that the story in fact happened...!

Stuck for a Christmas gift?! I have a series of genealogy books available in the UK, Australia and Canada, on Scottish, Irish and British based subject areas. Further details at Santa approves!
