Marion Scott died at Dunkeld, November 21st, 1727, at one hundred years of age, and was buried in the old Abbey. Her gravestone bears this inscription:
Stop, passenger, until my life you have read.
The living may get knowledge from the dead.
Five times five years I lived a virgin life.
Five times five years I was a virtous wife.
Ten times five years I lived a widow chaste.
Now, tired of this mortal life, I rest.
I, from my cradle to my grave, have seen
Eight mighty kings of Scotland and a queen.
Full twice five years the Commonwealth I saw,
Ten times the subjects rose against the law.
Twice did I see the old prelacy pulled down !
And twice the cloak was humbled by the gown.
And end of Stuart's race I saw; no More !!
I saw my country sold for English ore.
Such desolations in my time have been.
I have an end to all perfection seen.
