Mr Scott, whose birthday it is today, wrote a great deal about the folklore and history of Scotland, particularly in the Borders region. His famous work Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft continues to have it uses even now. Follow the link to learn more. I love that it was suggested by his son-in-law who was ‘hoping to distract his father-in-law from working on more arduous enterprises’ whilst he was recovering from a stroke. The recuperative powers of witchcraft. I am needing a little of that now as I recover from a visit to Helsinki, massive crowds of people and the sad realisation of how little time I have left in Scotland.
