Description

In 1563, the putrifying corpse of George Gordon, the fourth earl of Huntley, was tried and found guilty of treason. A bizarre end for a nobleman whose power and arrogance had earned him the title of 'the cock o' the North'.

Despite the humiliation of Clan Gordon, their prestige was resurrected by the sixth Earl of Huntley, whose intimate relationship with King James the Sixth set tongues wagging and resulted in a jealous feud with a memorably bloody finale - the brutal murder of the Bonny Earl of Moray.

The gruesome story of how the Gordons became embroiled in a blood feud that led to open rebellion against the Scottish crown, leading to their eventual downfall.
