About the Book

"A Legend of Montrose" is a historical novel by Sir Walter Scott, set in Scotland during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms in the 1640s. The novel revolves around the military campaign of the Earl of Montrose on behalf of King Charles I against the Covenanters, who had sided with the English Parliament in the English Civil War. The main plot follows a love triangle involving Allan M'Aulay, his friend the Earl of Menteith, and Annot Lyle. Annot, who was captured during a blood feud and raised by the M'Aulays, eventually marries Menteith after her true lineage is discovered. This leads to jealousy and violence between M'Aulay and Menteith. A significant subplot features Dugald Dalgetty, a mercenary fighting for Montrose. Dalgetty, known for his love of violence and professionalism, brings a comic element to the story. However, Scott acknowledged that Dalgetty's character dominated the narrative excessively. Overall, "A Legend of Montrose" combines historical events with fictional storytelling, offering a vivid portrayal of Scotland's tumultuous past and exploring themes of love, loyalty, and political intrigue.
