(1854 Selkirk - 1927 Selkirk)
Scott was rooted in his home landscape, in the Scottish Borders. He spend his life in and around Selkirk, painting in watercolours familiar landscape, everyday sciences and sometimes making trips further afield in Scotland and in the Continent. His work was appreciated during his life time, and he become an Associate Member of the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA) in 1888, a full member in 1902. In the course of 50 years he exhibited over 160 works at the RSA.
