    The Earl of Argyll suspected the [MacAulay] Laird of Ardencaple, among others, to have been involved in a conspiracy which resulted in the murder of John Campbell, Laird of Calder, in 1591. Argyll's evidence pointed to a larger conspiracy which had designs on the assassination of himself, his brother Colin Campbell of Lundy, the Earl of Moray, and John Campbell of Calder. It seems the conspirators goal was to replace the Earl of Argyll with his kinsman, Campbell of Lochnell, who was next in line of succession to Argyll after his brother Colin, and divide the vast estates of Argyll amongst themselves.[31] When Argyll discovered MacAulay was somehow involved in the plot he took action and, by May 1594, invaded and took Ardencaple Castle from the MacAulays. The Duke of Lennox, taking Argyll's action to be a direct assault on himself, demanded Argyll to return the lands of Ardencaple. By July 1594 the Earl had eventually executed Patrick MacAulay og "Mackalla ogg" and his brother Patrick, for Calder's murder.
    Seems he had an older son than Colin:
    ?Sir Hugh was the oldest son of Sir Colin Campbell of Lundie and his wife, Mary Campbell, dau of the Lord of Glenurchy.?
