I read with interest your article about Ronald MacDonald Douglas ../rmdoug.htm
I note that rather than a trial for high treason in late 1935 or possibly early 1936 he was told by the Lord Advocate to go to Dublin and not come back.
I have in front of me a copy of 'The Scots Book', published in 1935 and inscribed on the front leaf in Gaelic to my grandfather - Alasdair Mac Leoid, leis gach dhurachd, Raonull domhnallach Dubhglas, Inbhir nis, Nollaig 1937
I also have Douglas's 'The Irish Book', but that is simply signed by him with the date 1938
It does suggest to me that he may have been in Inverness at Christmas 1937, rather than posting the book as probably happened with the Irish Book.
My mother told me that Oliver Brown and other Nationalists of the 1930s were regular visitors and I believe my grandfather was a founder member of the NPS in 1928.
Does anyone have any further information about RM Douglas and whether he did, as the article says, spend the next 30 years in exile.

He was writing articles for the Celtic League annual into the 1970s. The best bet for getting hold of them would be to join the National Library of Scotland.
