Meggie Cowie and Montrose Basin
Scotland suffered more than most from the fervour of the Witch trials that took place in the 16th 17th & 18th centuries. The story of Meggie Cowie was a not unfamiliar tale of women being accused of witchcraft on fairly dubious grounds.
The Witches of Scotland website aims to deliver justice to all those people accused, tortured, and killed during this dark phase of history.
Montrose Basin today acts a wildlife reserve and is home to many species of waders, waterfowl, geese, and other species which live there.
