Amanda Scott | Legends
Uncategorized / February 25, 2009

Border Wedding, Border Lass, and Border Moonlight all began with a legend from Scott family history…the legend of Muckle-Mouth Meg. Meg was Meg Murray, who was supposedly one of the homeliest women in the Borders. Legend perpetuated by Sir Walter Scott the poet, among others, was that the son of famous reiver Wat Scott of Harden was trying to steal cattle from one Jagan Murray, a neighbor, when he got caught. Murray supposedly gave Will Scott the choice of hanging or marrying Meg. So, that’s where I started. But the first thing I discovered in my research was that the man involved was not Will Scott of Harden. Negotiations for Will’s marriage to his wife Agnes are well documented as being long and amiable. Click here to read the rest of Amanda’s blog. Visit to learn more about books and authors.
