Sir Walter Scott’s novels of the day reflected with searing accuracy the civil turmoil and the dark mood of the Scots in the early decades of the eighteenth century. Stories like Scott’s The Heart of Midlothian also afforded readers vivid insights into the extent of smuggling. In Gavin D. Smith’s book The Scottish Smuggler (p. 166), he prints some of Scott’s most telling notes that formed the basis of The Heart of Midlothian.
