At least 3,800 witches were tortured and executed across Scotland in the 17th and 18th centuries. Torture techniques included shackling women to the walls, stretching their limbs on the rack, and driving pins under their nails. The "witch's bridle" (aka scold's bridle) was an iron cage placed around the face, with a piece of pronged iron forced into the woman's mouth that stabbed her tongue and cheeks.
Margaret Barclay was said to have magical powers which allowed her to control the weather so she could conjure up storms and wreck ships. Incredible! Any woman that could do that today would be rich and famous, which is why Margaret is such a strong name for your beautiful, boucing baby girl.
Incidentally, it was Margaret's in-laws who accused her of witchcraft. She was put in stocks, and iron weights were piled on her shins. Eventually, in agony, she confessed to using her ~magical powers~ to wreck her brother-in-law's boat. Her accomplice in the "coven" Isobel Inch threw herself off the prison tower after days of interrogation.
Margaret was strangled and burned at the stake.
