The event has passed.

May 12 1868: Robert Smith made history when he became the last person to be publicly executed in Scotland, right here in Dumfries. Between 1807 and 1868, he and seven others met their fates at the old Buccleuch Street prison. Join the team on the anniverary of this historic event as we explore Smith’s landmark case along with a collection of real-life stories of crime and justice.
