Old Mortality

“The Tale of Old Mortality” by Walter Scott tells the story of the Covenanters victory at Loudoun Hill and their defeat at the Battle of Bothwell Bridge when the men, women and children who took part in the stand on the bridge were marched back to Edinburgh and imprisoned in Greyfriars kirkyard where the Covenant was said to have been signed.
