The anniversary of the death of Sir Walter Scott was marked by the laying of a wreath on his tomb at Dryburgh Abbey, by the Edinburgh Sir Walter Scott Club.

Sir Walter died on September 21, 1832, and Alasdair Hutton, club chairman, pictured with Mrs Louis Gardiner, secretary, said: “Sir Walter left us and his country a legacy of writing unsurpassed by any writer before or since.”
