Scotland has a rich legacy of fine writers, and although some of them may not get the same attention as Robert Burns or Sir Walter Scott, they are equally as interesting and enjoyable.

Who are the Scots?

Sir John Sholto Douglas (8th Marquis of Queensberry) (1844 - 1900) Devised the 'Queensberry Rules' for boxing in 1867. Was tried for libelling the Irish playwright Oscar Wilde, who was said to be having a homosexual relationship with Douglas' son, Lord Alfred. This action led to Wilde's disgrace and imprisonment.
