|Edinburgh - October 3, 1746
To distress the Clan Cameron and oblidge them to a Complyance with the
present Laws against carrying of Arms, and wearing of Highland Cloathes,
a Military force will be necessary.
For this purpose, and apprehending such Rebell Gentlemen as are lurking
in Lochels Country, and preventing their making Depredations on their Neighbours
who are Loyal Subjects, it is judged 430 men will be necessary, and to be
stationed as follows:
||at Strontian - accommodation (exists) for 200.
||Head of Locheyll - but indifferent Quarters. Distant from Strontian
||Head of Locherkaig - requires a Strong Party as Bordering on Knoydart
and the McDonalds Country - bad accommodation. Distant from the head
of Locheyll 6 miles.
||Locheyls House at Achnacarry. Distant from head of Locherkaig
||Highbridge - indifferent accommodation. Distant from Achnacarry
||Kinlochbeg and Achtrichedan in Glencoe. Tolerable accommodation.
Distant from Highbridge 12 miles.
The above scheme given in by Donald Campbell of Airds to the Right Hon.
the Earl of Albemarl, and the Right Hon. the Lord Justice Clerk.
