Part of that calculation seems to be the use of the sympathy that the truly disabled can justifiably expect of our society as a cover for a naked act of theft by a person who is undoubtedly in full possession of his faculties.

The first recorded mention of the Macleans of Duart is in a papal dispensation of 1367 which allowed their Chief Lachlan Lubanach Maclean to marry the daughter of the Lord of the Isles, Mary Macdonald.
