Maggie Wall—The Witch Who Never Was
by Geoff Holder
A remarkable and striking B-listed roadside cross in Perthshire in Scotland is painted with the words
AS A WITCH 1657′
Maggie Wall has subsequently become the most famous witch in Scotland, featuring in folklore, folk history and modern pagan belief alike.
Which is strange, seeing as she never existed.
This is the story of the Witch Who Never Was.
