The History of Leith

May 5, 2011

A very apocryphal story.

Greenside continued to be used as the scene of feats of arms until the reign of Mary, and there, Pennant relates, Bothwell first attracted her attention, by leaping his horse into the ring, after galloping ” down the dangerous sleeps of the the adjacent hill”—a very apocryphal story.
