Living and hiding in the vicinity of Roslin Glen, George Brysson tells his own story of being hunted by government soldiers. “From one concealment to another he had to flee, making his way gradually back to the familiar homestead. Sometimes he slept in the wood beside the house, sometimes under the ripening corn; sometimes he would venture for a night into his own bed…George Brysson ran perilous risks so long as he lingered near the Midlothian home” says Alexander Smellie. In this episode we get a brief glimpse of some of his experiences. (The main photograph is of the woods in Roslin Glen close to his home).
