The Arms of Councillor Eoin Flett Scott of Redland

Grant: 20th January 1967. The Court of the Lord Lyon. folio 87 Volume 48 Public Register of All Arms Scotland.

 It appears that in the first quarter of the sixteenth century one David Walter Scott had been a consistent 'Border Reiver,' carrying out continuous armed raids into northern England. About that time a full time military presence was set up in the northern counties and raids across the Border almost became a thing of the past. Meantime however, David Walter, feeling cheated, start to raid his neighbours in Scotland.

He was quickly branded a criminal and was captured and taken to Edinburgh in November 1526. The charges laid against him were cattle rustling, sheep stealing and sundry murders; all capital crimes. At his trial he was found guilty and sentenced to decapitation or life-long excile; he clearly had friends at court.

Some friends gave him a small sailing boat, and leaving from Scotland's East coast he set sail for the flat lands of the Netherlands. He was told it would take only three days but after over two weeks at sea, cold and starving, one day just before dawn, he was ship wrecked and rescued by farmers speaking a foreign language; he thought he was in the Netherlands.

In actual fact he had become ship wrecked in the Orkney Island of Sanday with its long flat sandy beaches. Instead of sailing east he had sailed north and the locals, at that time, spoke only Old Norse. It is not recorded if he ever discovered his mistake!

The armigerís family are descended from this David Walter Scott.

When the armiger was quite young he discovered, built into the familyís collapsed milldam wall, a carved but very weathered heraldic stone. He was told by the artist, Stanley Cursiter RSA, to take a rubbing of the stone which would be taken to his friend, the then Lord Lyon, Sir Thomas Innes of Learney.

It seems that the Lyon Office had great difficulty identifying the heraldry from the stone. However, the image was pinned to a wall in the Office and left until one day about two years later one of the young staff ladies, on using her mirror before lunch, accidentally saw the rubbing in reflection and recognised it as Scott Arms. It appears the carver was illiterate and took the design off the matrix of a seal, hence the carving was in reverse!
